If you get a real tattoo I’m gonna punch your nose so no one will look at it. They’ll be looking at your red nose only.
Thanks for following! We’re sorry we’re so in and out, but this is encouraging to read.
Hello, hello — I think like getting any job, it’s largely a combination of skill, a lot of luck, timing and connections. I started out in magazines — interned at one, worked on one in college, then got a job at one after I graduated. There came a point where I knew I needed to leave magazines, and so I started reaching out to the people with whom I’d kept in touch, and one person knew another person who knew of an opening at CC Digital, which led to rounds of interviews and tests and, ultimately, a job. I say — keep up your friendships with people that you meet because you never know what you might learn from them, and vice versa. Someday, they may ask something of you, too. And always keep your resume/portfolio updated.
Sorry to not have a more concrete answer of this-is-how-it’s-done, but I’m still figuring this all out, too!
Using a study from Divya Raghavan at NerdWallet, we made a cool graphic to help recent graduates find the best city to start that exciting next step of life. Using an overall score combined from different metrics such as demographics, social life, accessibility, cost of living, and availability of jobs, NerdWallet found the top 10 cities for recent grads. Take a look, maybe you’ll find a new city to start your postgrad life!
Hey, why not self promote, it’s a pretty graphic!
I went to visit Jen in London a few weeks ago, and we staged the Ultimate Selfie.
These days, even more than the obsession millennials have with the selfie, is the obsession writers have about millennials and the selfie — together and separate.
Here’s a small roundup of bullshit/intriguing articles I’ve (for some reason?) seen in the past few weeks about millennials, selfies and why we are all unemployed/lazy/narcissistic/carefree/irresponsible/poor/validation-seeking/manic.
If I read one more story where someone breaks down the “history of the selfie…” WE KNOW ABOUT VAN GOGH, OK? AND WE KNOW REAL LIFE IS HARD.
Maybe our palettes have expanded beyond pizza and ramen after leaving college, but that hasn’t made us any lazier about pgl cooking.
As much as I loathe Buzzfeed, they’ve got some handy lists. And I’ve linked above the handiest of handy.
Almost as handy (but not as tasty)?
Today I opened the fridge and realized I had three items.
Fresh yogurt, an expired (empty) container of yogurt and another expired container of yogurt.
When people asked me why I was moving back to Turkey my answer was almost always: “Cheap yogurt.”
I asked my fellow pgl ladies what is the main ingredient of their daily lives —
Malia: Annie’s mac n’ cheese
CKB: Lean Cuisines (and vitamin supplements, good girl!)
Stuart Heritage: I owe my career to the time I spent living with my mum and mad, so no wonder nearly 50% of young Europeans do it
A friend posted this on his FB this morning. Think it might apply to some of our followers and friends! Take a glance. Even across the ocean, pgl’ers are all going through the same things.
