If you’re one of the tens of thousands of people who applied to be Charlie Sheen‘s social media intern, we have some bad news: not all of you will make it through to the next round. Applicants who didn’t make the cut started receiving emails with the following image attached. Better luck next time, guys! More
Our parent company, B5Media is creating a new parenting site and a professional women’s site. We’re looking for editors in New York and Toronto to get these new projects off the ground. If you think you’d be a good fit, tell us why.
In the 12 days leading up till December 25th, we’ll be rolling out our “Oh Sh-t It’s Christmas” features.
The holidays are about goodwill, cheer, and peace to all men. It’s also about leaving your best friends, boyfriends, and gym routines back at college. Being back home means never having to say you’re sorry to your diet plan, because no one is around to judge you. Lie inert for weeks straight and claim you need your “rest” from the grueling physical task of writing papers on a computer screen all semester. Sure, you may be a depressing lump of lard for the entire month of January, but we say revel in it! More
New York is supposed to be a city where dreams come true, but I’ve yet to see that side of it yet. I’m sneaking into college by taking classes part-time before I apply, I work in retail, and I have a part time-internship. Part-time usually means 30%-50% of your time. So if my calculations are correct I spend a minimum of 90% of my time working somewhere.
At first, I was a total brat & crybaby (toxic combo) because I was so stressed out. For example, if there weren’t any seats on the subway I would either: a) pretend to be pregnant until someone got up or b) just start to cry silently. I am by no means complaining, but if you’ve ever been in this position you know how I feel. I slowly got used to being on-the-go and have even got some tips and advice for those of you who are entering this stage. I’d like to extend a helping hand. More
I love perusing campus blogs, because believe it or not, you darn kids usually are who we look to as trendsetters and taste-makers. I routinely call up my sister and ask her what’s “in” at her college (and yes, it’s Spirit Hoods), and what her class is talking about. So keep up the good work, you guys! Key demographic!
But while we highly encourage blogging about school news, fashion, how much midterms suck, and dating, there is one arena that you guys need to STFU about. That’s right: stop giving “tips” about how other students should handle their first real-world job if you’re still a student. We don’t care if you had a summer internship, or if you took a year off to work abroad. If you’re still in school full-time and on your parents’ insurance plan, then you do not get to write advice to your peers about what to wear on the first day of their post-collegiate job. This counts double for people writing for college sites but are out of school, yet still talk down to their readers while giving terrible advice. It’s ignorant, a tad condescending, but most of all, just plain wrong. Sorry to make examples out of some of you well-meaning individuals, but here are our 5 “favorite” collegiate posts about life after college.
After you graduate college, you may decide to travel the road less taken. You know what that means: no temping for you, you’re going to start your own tech business, or become a graphic illustrator, or perhaps a taxidermist. And your parents? Well, they might fall into that category of which Will Smith once rapped about.
And in the off chance that your parents don’t just “understand” why they threw $40k down the hole so you could apply for grants to put on your gallery show of menstruation dollies, you don’t have to feel alone anymore. A new web documentary series called “How to Explain It To My Parents” showcases 5 abstract artists trying to explain to their parents what they do for a living. The results are…sort of what you’d expect. Watch this first episode between micro-brewer Arno Coenen and his father. Awwwwkward! More
Post-grad life is a lot about taking two steps forward only to take a step back. Some days, you feel like you’re ahead of whatever curve you’ve set for yourself and then other days, you feel like you’re falling behind. Although you have a lot more freedom and responsibility than life as a college student, the constant evolution of figuring out what to do next and what’s right is never ending. More
In elementary school, your birthday usually meant cupcakes and a rousing round of “Happy Birthday” sung just for you. In college, it meant an epic bar crawl with shots galore that only cost you an epic hangover the next day. But now that you’re in the nine to five world, birthdays don’t seem to matter as much. You’ll still get slammed with work, get yelled at by your boss, and may even have to stay late—even if all your friends are planning to meet you for post work drinks. In short? It’s never gonna be a celebration. But here’s how you can make the day a little more festive: More

By this point in the fall semester, most college students are already situated in their fall internships and probably have their weekly routine down. But Crushable — and our parent company, b5 media — is looking for some college students to help with writing, reporting and video, and these positions just can’t wait until the spring.
So if you (or someone you know) put off applying to an internship this semester, found you have a little bit of extra time in your schedule or just want to squeeze in a little more experience by working for an online media company, we might have the perfect opportunity for you. Or, at the very least, you can see how weird we all are in person. More
Don’t you hate that corporate ladder metaphor speak, where we’re all supposed to pretend our goal in life is to climb higher and higher until we bonk our heads on the still-in-existence glass ceiling? Me too. But still, we’ve all gotta start somewhere, and if you feel like you’re on the very first rung of a very shaky ladder, here’s how to fast-talk (and walk!) yourself up a couple well-deserved rungs in 9-5 world. More
When you began your job, the muted grays of the cube surrounding you seemed kinda cozy. Now, they’re straight-up claustrophobic and you are ready for the next leap. So you brush off your resume, send some network-y e-mails, and land an interview. Score! But you still have to sneak out of the office for an hour or two. Here, what to say to get out gracefully (plus, even if you’re not going for a gig, you can always use these excuses to escape the office for a much needed mental break). More
So, I was sitting in a meeting doing a few of the things I do when a meeting has gone on far too long: Doodling my name on my notebook, thinking about lunch (the eternal salad versus GoodBurger debate, which, btw, never ends virtuously), wondering why a neon pink pedicure never lasted as long as red… the usual things you think about when you’re Not Paying Attention, when I felt a tap on my arm.
“Do you have anything else to contribute?” My boss asked, smiling.
I looked at her, looked around the table and panicked, before mumbling something about needing to find my notes. But after all that frantic paper shuffling, followed by whatever lame idea I choked out, I realized there are way better ways for dealing with being put on the spot. Here’s how to get out while looking good: More
In high school, I was voted most dramatic in the senior class — and it wasn’t because of any acting aspirations. I was the type of girl who’d announce that she was having a nervous breakdown in gym class, would freak out over a physics test, and wouldn’t think anything of crying if I was upset. Unfortunately, in the workplace, a breakdown is not as simply solved as being excused to take a nap during the nurse’s office. And one time, after a cryfest at my cube turned into my boss asking me if I needed to “take time off” to “deal with my emotions” (like, in a mental-health facility) I realized that sometimes, holding back can equal getting ahead. So, the tried-and-tested rules of breaking down—without your boss getting upset. More
