Here’s the news that caught my eye today while thinking that this really may be as serious as recent grads will be about the upcoming election.
- The Choice blog, from The New York Times, is detailing the college-selection journeys of 8 high school students from around the world. (Yes, I’m jealous of this series.) Here’s a piece from Thanh-Tran Nguyen, the self-proclaimed “Queen of Mediocrity.” (Yes, I’m jealous of that title too.)
- In case Diane’s last post about community college wasn’t enough to convince you, here’s a column from The Washington Post detailing the importance of 2-year schools.
- I’ll admit it: I made it to about number 20 on this list of 131 savvy ways to cut wedding costs from Wise Bread (which is probably more engaged than many men are in the wedding process).
- I can’t say whether or not joining Geico actually saves you money on car insurance. However, I can say that you’ll save money with these discount movie tickets from Geico Privileges. Even better? Non-Geico members can snag the discount.
- In our last Internview, Matt Black detailed some of the big gambles he made to find a job, i.e., telling a hiring manager he’d “wash their dog” in exchange for an interview. Still, his efforts pale in comparison to these 4 individuals.
