Why You Should Start a Blog Before You Graduate


Five years ago, straight A’s and a good internship where enough to land you a job at companies like Accenture, Goldman Sachs, and Amazon.com.

Sadly, this just won’t cut it anymore, because even class presidents are finding themselves jobless on their friend’s, or worse their parents’, couch.

What’s the answer? It’s not another internship. Instead, try using your 4 years of college to build an online presence that makes you stand out and maybe even turns into a small income. Listen to these tips to get yourself on the web, influencing others and creating original content people will love:

Start up your own blog or website. Blogs can be ridiculously funny, helpful, and entertaining. Guides on how and where to blog will help you get started, and if you do it right you’ll attract paying advertisers. Right after I graduated, I learned of a blog project a few girls called “betches” the year below me were working on. They basically created a guide for girls who love city life and dominate their social scene. They now blog full-time.
