Spent the past week sharpening your carnival skills? (An inability to knock over milk bottles is a problem for everyone, not just 20-somethings.)
Check out what you may have missed on the SALT™ Blog.
- Ashley Norwood dropped some mythbusting science on us (but without using any actual science)—detailing how where you work qualifies you for loan forgiveness, not what you do.
- Not to be outdone, Diane Melville broke out her math skills to calculate three tactics that could save you thousands on your college education.
- Sasha Laferte doesn’t need science or math; she’s all about luck. (Well, maybe not all about it.) Still, she feels good gambling her money on these four items.
- Sarah Barker hit the road with her college-aged son to talk about #20SomethingProblems (and listen to rap music. Likely had more success with the latter than the former).
- Brigit Bauma relived her community college days to share how easy it can be to make friends while studying there.
- Amanda Abella taught us different ways to use a slow hiring season (i.e., right now) to our advantage.
- Diane had a big week saving people money. If it’s too late for you to take the tips from her paying-for-college post, check out her aggressive strategy for paying off student loans in a year instead.
- We used an Internet phenomenon (#StarbucksDrakeHands) to help people remember a financial one (The Latte Factor).
- Susie Boretti prepared for the first day of her new full-time job, checking a few things off her to-do list along the way.
- In our newest comic, we illustrated a couple things that can get in the way of your dream career: a bad résumé and bad advice.
- Carmen Guzmán already works at a couple different places, but that doesn’t mean she’ll shy away from another job—especially since this one is being her brother’s college adviser.
