I’m a journalism major with an economics minor, but I tell everyone that I’m an economics major with a journalism minor because it sounds harder. We both know that I’m lying about my GPA, so it’s probably best to just not bring it up. Every job that I’ve had up to this point has come as the direct result of a family connection, so my letters of rec are complete horse shit. Please hire me.


College/University: It’s a good school, but you’ll probably still have to Google it.
Degree Earned/Graduation Date: Let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
Major: Economics. 😉
Minor: “Journalism.” Okay, fine, English with a writing concentration. Okay, just English. Whatever.
Sex: Yes please (classic!)
Honors: Dean’s List (Dean’s Commendation (which is worse), but hey — close enough).
GPA: 3.4 (What are you going to do, email the registrar’s office? Yeah, I thought not).
Activities and Societies: *Long list of clubs that I went to maybe one meeting for* and my fraternity.

Confusing Sounding Internship
My minimum wage summer job from after freshman year that I’ve made the executive decision to call an “internship” because it makes it sound fancier.

      Thanks. I wish I’d thought of it last year. Would have made one hell of a TFM username.
