Just Starting Your Career and Struggling To Find a Good Job? ($100)
IDEO.ORG, a non-profit design firm, is looking for teenagers and young adults (participants between the ages of 16 and 24) in the Los Angeles area to talk about experiences with employment for a research study. We are setting up 90-120 minute in-person conversations for Wednesday, January 30th through Friday, February 1st. If you are under 18 you must be able to arrange for a parent or guardian to give consent of your participation. You will be compensated $100 for your time.
