NEW BRUNSWICK - With President Barack Obama's recent jobs speech, many college students say they are hoping that the results of the bill he sent to Congress today will be passed in time to help them.

In his speech, Obama said he would put firefighters, police officers and teachers to work. However, Rutgers University seniors are wondering if the government stimulus will work in time for their entry to the job market.

Sherylene Diaz, who is expected to graduate in May, told News 12 New Jersey that both of her parents are currently out of work, and as a first-generation college student, she feels more of the responsibility is on her.
