Summer is almost here and the hiring season is in full swing. But looking for summer jobs may be more difficult then students think. Students may need to begin looking for jobs as soon as possible if they are planning to work this summer. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the youth employment rate last summer was 48.8%, the lowest since 1948. This summer could be similar.

Making plans to look early is crucial for students. Using resources such as the CSU Career Center and social media, students needs to begin establishing connections with future employers. Katie Flint, Associate Director of the CSU Career Center, talked about the benefits the career center has, and how students should communicate all skills to future employers, not just education experience. Students should try looking into jobs they wouldn’t normally consider, highlight all skills in his or her resume, and start the process by deciding which kind of job wanted.

Although the process may be difficult and discouraging sometimes, if students just keep applying places and use their resources, you should have no problem landing a summer job.

Disneyland housed an extra princess Tuesday night– a pop diva princess that is.

Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon celebrated their 5th wedding anniversary– along with their twins’ 2nd birthday– at the “Happiest Place on Earth.”

The adorable couple dressed up in prince and princess attire in a fairytale private ceremony in front of Sleeping Beauty’s Castle at Disneyland in California.

According to Entertainment Tonight, Carey and daughter Monroe were picked up in a princess-suitable horse-drawn carriage from the Dream Suite at Disneyland. The two princesses were then taken to Main Street to meet up with Cannon and son Moroccan. The Cannon clan all walked down the aisle together as one big royal family for the outdoor ceremony.

Cannon DJ’d the reception following the cermony, where a reported 250 people, and possibly Mickey and Minnie, attened at Fantasyland.

This is the 4th time the couple have renewed their vows since their marriage in 2008. If the marriage continues to go well, one can only wonder where next year will take the couple and their vows. Italy? Wizarding World of Harry Potter? Casa Bontia?

Sound of in the comments below and let us know where you think the reality stars will renew their vows next year.

Make sure to tune into Ram Entertianment hosted by Christian Zamora every Wednesaday during the school year here on CTV 11.

Author: Lena Howland


This April has proven to be drastically different compared to last year – all thanks to the snow.

Last April was the driest in Colorado history due to a lack of moisture and precipitation.

At this time last year, Colorado firefighters had just wrapped up the Lower North Fork Fire in Jefferson County and were nearly a month away from battling the High Park Fire in Larimer County.

Regardless of the snow, Poudre Fire Authority is still expecting more fires in the upcoming season.

Hot and dry weather combined with wind can quickly wipe out the moisture Larimer County has recently received.
