Searching for a student co-op, internship or summer job, and trying to land your dream entry level job can be extremely frustrating at times.

We get it. We’ve been there too! But you can always count on us to cheer you up.

Every morning, we post a motivational, inspirational or encouraging quote for students and recent graduates on our Facebook page and Twitter stream just for you.

We like to call it Sunny Side Up – so whether you read it, share it, retweet it, “pin” it, or print it out and tape it to your wall, we hope it makes your day a little more egg-cellent! If you miss one, don’t worry – we’ve got you covered there too: we’ll post a Sunny Side Up round up here on the Career Incubator every Friday.
