Use a Google Map to Find a Job

In the past, our centre has suggested using WalkScore if you need to find a job within walking distance of your home, but Career Services at Penn State Abingdon has created a very useful video about how to find a job using the Search nearby feature in Google Maps.

And don't think that people who want a job within walking distance are lazy; they have legitimate reasons to need a job close by. It is possible that they have family members (children or elderly relatives) who may need them in an emergency; They may not be able to afford a car/afford gas. We should not also not demand that people put their money into vehicles or gas when they are saving for a term abroad, or when they are using their savings so they can live without a salary when they take an unpaid internship that is supposed to help them move their career forward.
