#Read3: Nov. 10, 2013

20131109-171213.jpgHappy Sunday, America!

I’m finally back in Southern California after moving from Philly on Tuesday and spending the few days thereafter in San Francisco.

The proverbial lull has now begun to settle in where no big things are in the horizon for the time being. Nevertheless, I’m still gearing up for the start of the graduate certificate program at San Jose State University in January and focusing on my ongoing job search.

In the meantime, here is my #Read3 for this Sunday, November 10, 2013.


  1. Millennials vs. Boomers: 5 Stereotypes That Aren’t True (Mostly) – Forbes publishes a report from a nonprofit IT trade association that dispels some of the stereotypes and myths involving millenials and baby boomers. Some of the findings are pretty obvious while others are surprising, to put it best.
  2. Why the Informational Interview Should Be Your Favorite Job-Hunting Tactic – Brazen Careerist has a post out about how informational interviews can give you an upper hand in your job search, especially if you are a recent graduate or a soon-to-be-graduate. I’ve written about this topic earlier this year on Beehooved and have participated in three of them myself this year. Little by little, you’d be amazed at how this can help you progress in your job search and your career.
  3. Why I Said Goodbye to “Selfies” – Jon Negroni explores why people take “selfies,” the root cause of selfies and why he stopped doing so. Never was a selfie person myself and never really understood why others — some even more so than others — engage in this behavior. The ones that bug me most are those that take shots from restrooms; Jon touches on this part as well in the post.
