READER QUESTION from Kristin:
Q. I’m currently a college senior at XXX University studying journalism who is seeking advice. The exciting thing: I’ll have a degree in journalism this June with no obligations and this raging desire to experience/live in New York. The horrifying thing: I’m not exactly the richest of ladies, and trying to survive in New York on a post-graduate budget with the horrifying prospect of no jobs lined up (or only non-paying internships lined up) is really discouraging.
Do you have any advice on the first steps I should take?
A. Hi there Kristin! First, don’t worry. This is totally doable. Tough, but doable.
