E-School for Girls | Social Media Day

This week, I had the pleasure of teaching high school students from all five boroughs of New York City how to use social media to land their dream jobs.

We covered the fine art of using LinkedIn to create a digital resume - and how to write an eye-catching bio to impress any recruiter (especially when the inevitable lay-off happens). More on that in this Moneyish interview.

Thanks E-School for Girls for having me back (for the 3rd year)! See you next summer!

Back to School with Rebecca Minkoff

"In every life phase, you'll be confronted with something that scares you. And you have to go into it being as fearless as you can."

This week, I had the opportunity to interview designer and business icon Rebecca Minkoff in front of an audience of fifty New York University, Parson School of Design, and FIT students. After a great Q&A in June - where Rebecca shared advice with a group of entrepreneurs - she decided she also wanted to share her experience and business advice with the future generation. 

We talked shop (literally) about everything from being confident and landing a job to starting your own business. Head to Forbes for my top five takeaways from my chat with Minkoff, and check out the live Q&A on Facebook

Thanks to everyone who attended, and to NY Magazine and NY Post for covering the event!
