UW-Madison student blogs for Wall St. Journal

Posted:

CHIPPEWA FALLS (WKOW) – Deciding on the next step after college can be a difficult decision. One UW-Madison student is making the most of his time leading up to graduation.

Carter Franz is blogging for the Wall Street Journal on what it's like to be a student on the job hunt. He's one of seven students picked to contribute to the blog "Hire Education."

He says it's helped him find a direction.

"For me, I'm trying to make a decision. Do I go to grad school, do I enter the job market? And so I think being on this blog really helps make that decision."

Franz says he's discovered the importance of using social networking sites like Facebook and LinkedIn.

He'll graduate from the UW in December with a degree in civil and environmental engineering.
