Also, although I am looking for a job, I want a part-time job to compliment my school work, not for the money but for the experience, so don't worry, I wont turn searching for a job, into a job
Thanks again though to everyone!
You're welcome, I hope it helps. Navigating the airport to meet the appropriate people will be really good, if you can do that (I have no idea if security is going to be a problem there). Not many people will make the effort. Call around, see if it's possible to get into their office.
I think meeting an actual human being face-to-face is probably more important than ever. I think just in general we are cut off a little bit from people, thanks to all this awesome technology. Email and text messages are awesome but we haven't changed, only technology has. We still like to interact with humans, people are social, it's how we have survived the eons: in groups, not alone. So actual contact with a person probably goes farther in a job search now than it did before. Just my opinion. Good luck!
