Are you ready to handle your own finances when you leave Elon?  Anthony Hatcher, Associate Professor of Communications, will address the practical economics of making a living after graduation. What are all of those mysterious deductions from your paycheck? How will you live on the rest? This session will give you strategies for budgeting for rent, car payments, loan payments, a cell phone, cable, and an internet connection. And then there‚Äôs food! Also learn how to determine the cost of living for various areas of the country. For example, a lower salary in North Carolina may bring in more money than a high salary in Los Angeles, Boston, Philadelphia or New York.
