YORK, Pa.-- Our Fixing Your Finances segment is taking a direct aim at students.

On today's morning show, Tamika Baker, Vice President of Human Resources at White Rose Credit Union, comes to the set to talk about how students can manage their money.

Tamika often goes into York-area schools to help students prepare to get a summer job or a job after graduation. She discusses what to expect in a job interview, and conducts mock interviews. She also addresses an application, resume, how to dress, etc.

Tamika also helps students learn about money management skills through a program called Mad City Money. The program was developed as a financial education and simulation game by the Credit Union National Association, and is available for credit unions interested in teaching money management skills to students.
