You Don’t Have to be Shaken Up to Wake Up

Even though I would have loved a shiny new car, my dad had suggested I go for a reliable junk box instead. Since I had been known to take out a few mailboxes and was somewhat of a menace on the road, I begrudgingly agreed.

I’ll pay you for it.” “Sure,” said Picasso. “That will be $20,000.” The woman was stunned. “What? It only took you two minutes to draw that.” “No, ma’am,”

Do Hiring Managers Care What Your Major Is?

By Lily Zhang Whether you’re a career-minded undergraduate ready to take on the professional world or someone with a bit more experience, at some point you’ve probably wondered whether or not your college major has impacted your career.
