Valuable (albeit also entertaining) Advice for “Young” “Professionals”

Evil MonkeySo I’ve been quasi-addicted to Thought Catalog recently, thanks to reposts up the wazoo (I’m pointing my finger at you, Alyssa).

Yes, it does a number on your work output if you find a great chain of posts, but I like to think that reading these ramblings is good for the mind… it’s good for the soul… IT’S GOOD FOR SOCIETY, OKAY?

Amidst my web wanderings I came across the article, 25 Rules For Young “Professionals” and thought, “Well, I’m a young professional according to Wikipedia, so I should probably read this.”

[five-minute break for you to go and read it, but don’t forget to come back here!]

I think #14 is probably one of the most important on the list (though #1 is up there… I’m a self-proclaimed grammar cop).

“Even though college is over, you should still find extracurriculars. Among the many reasons, clubs and organizations are terrific places to network.”

We are extremely fortunate that New Hampshire offers plenty of outlets and opportunities for its peeps to get together, chat, network, eat, drink, stay, work and play (see what I did there?).

You wanna know just how awesome NH really is? Google even thinks so- MYPN comes up in the second spot when you search, “young professional”. Catapult, Keene and Concord are in the top-7 as well, so kudos, Granite State!

According to #3 in the post I should stop typing now, so that’s what I’ll do.

    I hate to burst your bubble, but I’m about to: MYPN only comes up 2nd in Google because you’re searching from in NH… Google knows where you are and gives filtered results based on what it knows about you.

    Well then, let’s look on the bright side… unless my post is being read globally, there’s a good chance the people who search for that phrase, will see MYPN, right? 🙂
