The SALT Blog kept things brief last week. But if you spent a couple extra days preparing your Thanksgiving feast (or recovering from your preparation), we’ve got you covered with the stories you missed.
- Mike Restiano isn’t an expert on international travel (yet), but he’s learning. Since he’s spending the year abroad, Mike definitely sees the value in spending money on travel—but that doesn’t mean you need to break the bank.
- 85 percent of students see internships as important, but only 40 percent actually land such positions. Intern Shane explored whether co-ops are the answer to bridging that gap.
- Pop quiz: What’s the fastest way to cover $25,250 in student loan debt? Is it (a) win scholarships, (b) work part time while in school, or (c) work full time after graduation? Check out this infographic from Diane Melville for the answer. (Don’t worry, we won’t make you do math the Monday after Thanksgiving.)
- Thanksgiving may be over, but you’re probably still dealing with leftovers—especially if you didn’t take these cost-effective turkey tips from Michael J Cirino.
- All month long, we’ve talked about the end of student loan borrowers’ grace period. However, we forgot to actually define what a “grace period” is. With a little help from a certain chipmunk, we cut the drama and confusion that come with entering repayment.
