The Cafe Creative

We're there. Right now.
We're the 20-somethings, we're done with school, at least for a while and we have been dumped into this world of rent, loans, car payments, and health insurance with little more than maybe a degree and our own wits.

I hope some of my possible readers out there have more going for them than this but lets be honest. With the recession and the obscene cost of college we're all just a bit desperate right now and the mountain that is our career looms in front of us like Mt. Everest covered in barbed wire. Most of us have no clue what we're doing, and that more than includes me. Very few college programs, let alone high school ones offer rational and real life advice on getting a job. There are blogs out there on networking, and job advice but they all seem to be written by men and women in their 30's and 40's who are already established. They have good advice, yeah, but I couldn't find anyone who was writing about the immediacy and the interests and the passion of the post college collective.

I won't claim I know what I'm doing and I may contradict myself on more than one occasion. I'll certainly be referencing people who know a lot more than me and I'll hopefully be including a number of interviews with people all across the board.

I write from the perspective of a BFA graduate who loves programming and discussing human computer interaction, and this blog is dedicated to the 20-somethings, like me, who know they want a career but haven't been able to figure it out just yet, and the obscene about of coffee we'll be consuming along the way.

  1. Good idea for a blog. Have you read Can I Wear My Nose Ring to the Interview?
    It's not exactly this topic - close. It's meant for college grads looking for their first real job out of college. I didn't use some of its main ideas, but I found it enormously helpful.
