How To Plan An Epic Trip To Southeast Asia

Looking to travel to southeast Asia? This comprehensive guide covers where to go, visas you need, finding hotels or hostels, and booking transportation.

So I graduated from grad school in June, secured a job in an exciting new city starting in September, and have a whole lot of time in between… so I’m obviously going to be traveling! Back in April, my friend and I were dreaming of post-grad life and wanted an epic trip before heading into the real-world.

Summer Clothes and Fashion Guide

Need new summer clothes? Here's what I've been loving.

Over the weekend I did some major damage and bought so many summer clothes. Luckily, I don’t shop that often and when I do, it’s to get new items for a season. This time around I was in desperate need for new summer closet staples including shorts and shirts. Ever since grad school, it pains me to buy new clothes as much as I love new clothes.

How to Get a Job at a Big 4 Consulting Firm

Everything you need to know when applying to a Big 4 consulting firm.

IT consulting was a totally new concept to me about a year and a half ago. I went blindly into the Big 4’s recruiting period my first week of grad school. I was ill-prepared for the whole process. This included preparing my resume, going to a firm’s social, and learning more about these companies. Needless to say, I did not get an internship, let alone the first interview.
