Here’s what you may have missed on the SALT™ Blog if you were doing the same!
- Shane issued a commencement ceremony survival guide: water, sunglasses, and sunscreen not included.
- I gave you guys some awesome party ideas on the cheap for Memorial Day. If you missed out on this great advice, you can still use it this Friday: It’s National Macaroon Day. Same rules apply.
- Mike told us about the difference between splurging and wasting. Moral of the story? Garden parties are not a waste of money.
- Diane gave us part I (here) and part II (here) of her three-part ultimate scholarship FAQ. If you have any question on whether or not you should apply, you can find the answer in these posts!
- Bridget wrote about the perks and pitfalls of being in The Red. She is more capable at looking at the bright side than I am.
- I hashed out the questions and answers necessary for making a big purchase. My first decision: whether to get a cat. My second decision: a unicycle (you think I’m kidding).
- Anna shared how to survive after your first year of graduation.
- Amanda gave us three steps to building confidence as a first-time job hunter. Take a breath and don’t expect to become a CEO by the time you’re 25.
- Shane told us how to give employers a good first taste of you in the video of the week. It’s not as weird as it sounds … actually maybe it is. Shane says using a Taylor Swift quote in your email signature is like feeding an employer anchovies.
- Susie told us how she’s going to pay back all her student loans in a year. How does she plan on doing that?! Magic!? Not really. It’s something you can do too.
- Ryan showed us how you can enter to win a $5,000 scholarship from SALT and CollegeHumor. All you have to do is prove that you’re the most broke college student ever. Do you think a link to this blog will suffice as my application?
- We had a comic on the only time money grows on trees. Don’t get your hopes up—we don’t have any special seeds you can plant or anything like that.
- Shane used the show “Does Someone Have To Go?” to give us a look at the job world.
