“INVISIBLE” | A Short Film by Christian Jackson [Watch]

Because stories are meant to be shared– a film by writer/director/storyteller Christian Jackson.

INVISIBLE is a glimpse into the life of a homeless man who teeters between his reality and society’s.

Halloween music that’s not ‘Thriller’ [Listen]

For those of you interested in listening to something other than ‘Thriller’ and ‘Monster Mash’ this Halloween, check out Ice Cream Fire (Tim Kelly & Jackie Haydamacha), a pop/hiphop duo out of Los Angeles. It’s okay– change is scary.

Small world…
We really liked your recent write-up on Eion & Kendra. Eion actually produced our EP ‘Burn It Down‘ as well as our new song, “Last of Us” that we released today for Halloween. We hope you dig it.

It’s Monday, Time to F@#k Sh*t Up

Today, you’re challenged to do something new. Something out of the box (whatever that may be). Something out of YOUR ordinary. Because what better way to start off the week then with a little turbulence to keep you on your toes. And if things happen to go awry, well– you have the rest of the week to make up for it.

Happy Monday

Goldilocks and The Three Bears of Business

You get the anticipated callback and that’s when the questions come firing in; “So, why are you applying for this position? You seem too___.”

Yep, it’s the corporate version of Goldilocks and The Three Bears– this one’s too senior, this one’s too junior, this one’s just right (if you’re lucky).

You would think someone overqualified would go in there like a badass and do an extra damn good job, right? But, HR probably figures you’ll leave once a “higher calling” comes a-callin’– which is most likely true.

Flip the script– now you’re “too junior” (code for, “this person ain’t worked a day in their life”– at least, not at this level).  In this case you would think someone junior would go in bright eyed, energized, and eager to learn, right? Not to mention flexin’ their innate knack for social media (because that’s what we do). But, HR probably sees it as too risky; we rather go with what we know– better safe than sorry!

Now, this time you’re that sweet spot in the middle– not too senior, not too junior– juuust right.

The end.

Wait a minute– there’s a part II. And in this chapter, you’re the Goldilocks making all the decisions around here (well, kinda). We have the responsibility of also choosing which company/employer is the right fit for us. Too stuffy? Stuff it. Too snobby? Slash it. Too geeky? Well, if that’s what you like– then go for it Goldilocks.

Fin.
