So you are in need of a new bag (or 2 or 3) for the year? There are so many different options – backpacks, messenger bags, sling bags, etc etc. You may know a style that you like already. Stick with it.
If you’re looking for ideas, here you go:

Backpack – Classic back to school item. Backpacks have 2 straps (and should always be used with both straps). Typically the best bag to use if you have a LOT to carry or if you have shoulders that easily get sore with messengers, or if you’re always on the move. Can be professional (don’t get the loud colors though) and laid back at the same time.

This summer has been full of adventures of all kinds – from spending time with family and friends, a little travel and even continuing my job search. I finished graduate school in May, and have been searching, with no success, for a job since. Well, actually since last September, but who’s counting the months? LOL
I’ve spent a lot of time searching for jobs, applying for jobs and never hearing back one way or another. It would be nice that if you didn’t get selected for an interview that the company or agency would let you know why, so you can improve your resume and cover letter and hopefully secure employment elsewhere. If you don’t know what’s holding you back, how do you move forward?

I love using a search engine to find information, but it comes as no surprise that even a tool as helpful as Google is gamed by people around the globe. How?
Search engine optimization, or SEO, is used not just for good, but for “evil,” too. Some SEO “experts” make their bread and butter by encouraging some of the worst practices in blogging – stuffing posts with keywords to generate higher search rankings and traffic, when the post may or may not be relevant for the searcher’s needs.
