Opens email. Sees 54 unread. Gets depressed. Deletes folder. If you’re like me and subscribe to just about anything mindlessly, it can become very easy to end up with a cluttered mailbox. However, a few email newsletters out there offer some great advice for college students. This article focuses on a few e-newsletters that I am subscribed to that I rarely delete (even during “The Purge”). Look into them for yourself…they’re thebomb.com.
The Skimm: Advice on Current Events
The Skimm is the best overview email of yesterday’s news headlines. Presented in a fun and snarky way, they give you a synopsis of the daily “need-to-know” stories. This is my go to for Election Season updates, post-Nationwide media events (Oscars, Emmys, American Idol finale, etc.) and the awesome “Quotes of the Day”. There’s lots of product promotion/deals and links to full-length articles in relation to their stories. Lots of goodies here…
The Muse: Advice on Professionalism
The Muse is the perfect site for all things professional. They offer advice for the office, career opportunities, and other professional skill development. I recently read an article about email (go figure) which really helped sharpen my skills for effective emailing that actually gets responses. This site is just a good resource to have when grappling with society’s biggest questions regarding office etiquette.
Pure Wow: Advice on Fashion and more
Pure Wow is the first Women’s Lifestyle blog I’ve found that has changed my life! Their fashion articles reinforce my knowing the latest trends. The finance articles have actual solid advice (something hard to come by). And their recipes are the perfect mixture of affordable and chic–encouraging me to think I’m a gourmet chef. Check this one out for sure.
I highly recommend all of these e-newsletters for any college student looking to level up their skills on the daily basis. Not only is there good advice on professionalism, but also an overview of relevant news and current trends.
