We all know it is important to have a good first impression on interviews and at the job. That comes at a heavy cost on the pocketbook. Guess the old theory of “Have to spend money to make money” applies here. There are essential expenses, including student loans that are starting to roll in as you’re looking for a job.

While I was studying for my bachelor degree, I joined a volunteer club called Reach. The student club had meetings and regularly scheduled volunteer activities in the community.
