these were both lame. next.
I always look forward to ask a pro but this shit was super lame. Step it up, Head Pro.
Nooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I thought Pro was way cooler until today. Go to Paris and skip the internship!!! If you’re a “true betch” (talented, smart, fun, quick-witted) you will be JUST FINE without adding “working as someone’s professional bitch” to your list of life experiences. A summer in Paris is just as impressive to a potential employer - if you’re smart enough to portray it as such when you job search. You will not, however, be just fine at finding ways to get to Paris after college. Landing a job is about showing you can be smart, passionate, and charming (in a professional setting) - and you do that by setting yourself apart and being bold, not by doing what literally every other person is doing. Just my opinion, and I am a young urban professional having my cake and eating it too, and easily paying to burn it off at Equinox with my own salary, not my dad’s credit card.
to the first girl, try looking into internships that you might be able to do during your senior year, that way you can go to paris and get an internship. either way if it was me, i’d def go to paris because that’s still something you can put on your resume and have an amazing summer. also it shows that you’re willing to try new things and get outside of your comfort zone which is something that future employers will most likely appreciate. besides, while internships are really really really helpful especially graduating in this economic climate ( i had 2 which i credit for being able to land a job immediately after graduating) there’s nothing like travelling while you’re young. good luck!
GO TO PARIS!!!! Get internship experience during the school year. As a post-grad who did two internships Senior year, the summer I spent abroad was hands-down the most rewarding experience.
The opportunity for internships will be waiting, but the chance to take a class abroad is NOW and won’t be there forever.
GO TO PARIS. It looks good on a resume too. And adds to your “well-rounded-ness” bullshit. And is interesting in interviews
LAME. Real betches don’t need career advice from a love/sex columnist. They just ask their dad and dad’s friends.
Lauren didn’t go to Paris
She’ll always be known as the girl who didn’t go to Paris…
girl#1… do not get a beach house with jason. go to paris!
disappointed about no LC reference head pro. the girl practically set it up for you
I chilled in Africa the summer before my senior year and was fiiiiine.. My roommate also got an internship IN Paris. Check yo options girl, you can get the best of both worlds
To the first betch,
I was in a similar situation my summer before Senior year. I had never had an internship before and still choose to study abroad - and it was the best decision of my life! Seriously not a day goes by where I don’t wish I was back there. When else where you be able to take a 3 month vacation on your parents dime while “earning college credit”?! Also, you can still put this course on your resume and talk about it during interviews (i.e. make up some bullshit about how it taught you really valuable career skills etc, etc)
And guess what - I still graduated with an awesome job last year where I’m making bank. Part of the reason for this is because I went to a credible college with a great career center and majored in a reliable field. Consider getting an internship over winter break your senior year. That’s what I did too!
Are you bitches blind?
This was funny as hell. HeadPro compared whiskey dick to a grub rooting around a rotted tree stump.
Fine holiday fun.
Also, HeadPro is a writer, so I think he knows whether a creative writing seminar in Paris is a big stupid waste of time or not.
