Debt per­cep­tion

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Job Market -

Find­ing that first job out of school re­quires a lot of pa­tience and per­se­ver­ance, so it’s no won­der that many re­cent grad­u­ates want to cel­e­brate find­ing their first job by buy­ing a new car or a new wardrobe. But be­fore you plunk down that credit card or agree to a new loan, take a few months to get used to your pay­checks. You may bring home less than you think — and you may have to re­think those prior pur­chases, es­pe­cially the ones pur­chased with credit. As­sess your fi­nan­cial sit­u­a­tion be­fore you find out you’re com­ing up short each check.
