As another month draws to a close, think positive. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and we’re that much closer to spring! Here’s this week’s Market it Write’s Monday Madeleines to get you off on the right foot. We hope you enjoy it.
Gone Corporate: First Impressions
This entertaining piece from The Corporate Hack provides some insight on what happens when an ad agency copywriter gets laid off, freelances for awhile, and then gets a job in a corporate office as a senior copywriter. Thanks to @JennyBrock for this one.
So You Want a PhD in Clinical Psychology? [VIDEO]
A student speaks with her professor about going for a PhD in clinical psychology. The professor offers her firsthand experience of what lies ahead for the student if she should follow her dream. Somewhat funny, somewhat depressing – at least for the student, who may now need a therapist. Thanks to @lyndaforman for this one.
The Facebook Setting You Should Change as Quickly as Possible
This is a bit of a detour for our Monday Madeleines, but something you should be aware of. Consider it a public service announcement. The article claims that one blogger sitting in a random New York Starbucks was able to steal 20-40 Facebook identities in half an hour. Here’s how you can prevent that from happening to you. Thanks to Tristan Bishop (@KnowledgeBishop) for tweeting this.
Video of the Week
Put the Triangle Out
This video shows that it pays to keep some type of device in your car that will stop traffic if the car breaks down. But it also shows that there’s more than one way to stop traffic. Thanks to Frank Rafalian (@franky_fashion) for this one.
