No, the SALT Blog didn’t set any archery records over the past week. However, one of our articles did hit the Olympic bull’s-eye (or, more realistically, make it onto the target—which is still impressive!). Here’s what else we talked about.
- Not-so-avid outdoorsman Mike Restiano blazed a trail through eBay, finding 5 camping essentials for under $5.
- We let Mike get back to his comfort zone, though, as he analyzed Netflix’s online library to determine if the $8/month service is really worth the money and outlined the importance of multitasking through the use of a treadmill desk.
- The total lack of CSI-related shows in Netflix startled Mike, but it wasn’t the most surprising thing he found online this week. That honor belongs to his credit report, which Mike checked out for free thanks to AnnualCreditReport.com.
- I can’t say whether it was the s’mores, the short-lived TV shows, or the stunning realization that FreeCreditReporrt.com isn’t actually “free,” but Mike declared himself “over the hump” in his mid-internship check-in.
We worked the intern hard last week! And that’s without even knowing whether this internship will turn into a job. (Probably not since he’s headed to London soon.) Let’s see what our other writers were up to.
- Diane Melville taught us how to determine your eligibility for a scholarship and 3 mistakes to avoid when searching for a scholarship.
- Our mysterious hiring manager returned. This time, he/she wasn’t laughing at your hobbies but did dole out ways you can network without being sleazy.
- Amanda Abella walked us through 4 reasons why she quit her first post-college job.
- Recent grad Bridget Casey gave us an inside look at her plans to get debt free… fast.
- We held our first-ever “conversation,” as SALT community members shared tips for planning an awesome wedding on a small budget.
