After spending three years building my resume with internships, jobs and extracurricular activities, it’s time to start thinking about the real world. I had some great feedback about the blog I kept in London, although it lasted only a few weeks. I’m going to do my best to use this blog to chronicle the experiences of my senior year, balancing 30hrs/week of work, a full time class schedule and what I’d like to consider a blossoming social life… All while hoping and praying I’ll land the job of my dreams by the time I graduate. Can I do it? Let’s hope.

Confession: I like beer... and moms

I recently became obsessed with my Klout score, only to realize that I am supposedly influential about two things: moms and beer.

My immediate response was to private my Twitter and check my Facebook privacy settings, but then I also began to wonder when I had ever motioned either of those things on social media. I think Klout is confused.

How, then, as aspiring young professionals do we guard ourselves against the publicly available misconceptions created by Klout? I might have made everything else private, but my Klout Score is still available for the world to see. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy a good brew and I think all of my friend’s moms are wonderful people, but I don’t shout it from the rooftops (or my keyboard). I guess for now I am left with the task of tweeting about news and hoping that I eventually become “influential” about something else by Klout standards.
