A few days ago I got an email from Feli who lives in Berlin and is about to start a new job at a design company. She wanted some advice on how to build a work wear wardrobe from scratch and on a limited budget. I decided to post my reply here on my blog, because I thought some of you guys might be in the same situation.
This is what Feli wrote me:
Hey Anuschka, I recently graduated from university and just got a full-time job at a design company, which I will start next month. At my interview I saw that everyone there dressed in a smart-casual kind of way, heels, blazers, etc. In my everyday life I dress a lot more casual, I like my Doc Martens and Converse, so I am kinda anxious about what to wear for work. I just read your post on quality versus quantity…

Apple posted a rare miss Tuesday thanks to a lull in iPhone sales. But as the following infographic shows, the company is doing quite well overall.
Statista crunched the numbers and found plenty for the folks in Cupertino to cheer about, namely overall strong growth in revenues and earnings. But consider also that Apple’s largest cash cow, the iPhone, has only been around five years. Meanwhile, the 2-year-old iPad is becoming another huge profit center for Apple. Not included in the chart, but worth mentioning is that Apple TV has quietly amassed 4 million units in sales over the last fiscal year and is no longer a “hobby” for the company.
If anything, this is a snapshot of a company in transition.
Music is widely free on the Internet. In seconds, web surfers can access millions of song on YouTube or an unlimited live stream with digital services such as Spotify.
With smartphone apps, free music is even available to-go. So, with free all-you-can-stream services, have people stopped paying for music? The numbers say yes.
By 2016, record stores sales are projected to drop another 77.4%, according to The Wall Street Journal. Local music shops and large national chains will not fare well.
In 2011, digital music sales surged 8% globally, accounting for $5.2 billion in legal downloads. More people may be listening to music, but physical album sales will continue to decline.
Tune in to the infographic created by Total Bankruptcy for more trends in the digital music revolution.
Automobiles have transformed dramatically since the first mass-produced Ford Model T car hit the consumer market about 104 years ago. But the evolution still continues, with gas-guzzling vehicles slowly turning into energy-efficient roadsters.
UK-based company Car Loan 4U has released an infographic highlighting the history of the car and it’s transformation into what we see in vehicles today.
The infographic highlights some of the most fuel-efficient cars in production, from the 2012 Chevrolet Volt to the Ford Focus E (76 miles) and the Renault Fluence Z.E. (115).
It also hints at the industry ahead: “In the near future, electric cars will outperform petrol cars in every area. The only thing that stands in the way of electric cars total domination is us. At current adoption rates, by the year 2030, only 7.1% of the car-driving population of the planet will own an electric car.”
With more and more of the population earning advanced degrees, you should think about ways to utilize your college degree choice to help you stand out from the crowd. Is your degree going to help you learn skills that are valued in tomorrow’s economy? America needs nurses, physician’s assistance, engineers, problem solvers, global thinkers, entrepreneur more than lawyers and art history majors. Labor markets are increasingly global. You will want to think about jobs where you compete with others based on knowledge skills rather than physical skills that can be done cheaper elsewhere. Think ahead about how your degree will make you valuable to the future economy. Is your field going to be reduced to computer algorithms, automated robotics, or an outsource workforce? If so, you may find it harder to win desired positions throughout your career.
75% of Americans think college is too expensive. While scholarships, grants, and loans make it possible for millions, your loans may become too much for you to handle if you struggle finding a job coming out of college. Thinking about your desired college’s reputation, the value of the specific degree you are planning on starting, and the job opportunities that are going to exist around that major in the future will help reduce the chances of a loan default.
Your goals with going to college can be personal development, learning unique and desirable skills, networking, and yes even earning that diploma required for many higher paying jobs. This will help make a college education worth it. We wish you good luck on this journey.
