2 Jobs Are Better Than 1

2 For 1

So this is a funny story that my friend reminded me (honestly, I had almost completely forgotten about it)…


We were in college (business school) looking for our first real corporate jobs for the Summer. 


With G-d’s blessing, I ended up with 2 nice offers.


But my good friend didn’t have a job.


So I offered one to him.


I was still a kid…what did I know!


I told one company that I accepted and the other company that I had a friend that was interested (of course, I would vouch for him). 


So on day 1 of the Summer job, my friend shows up there in the World Trade Center on the 99th floor (yeah, this is before 9/11 took the whole place down).


The corporate folks talked about it for 5 minutes and said he could stay.


Voila now we both had summer jobs!


Honestly, I can’t believe we ever had the chutzpah, but in those days people helped each other out more. 


2 4 1 and 1 4 All. 


And that’s how we both got started in the NY business world. 😉

Graduation Day

Graudation
So proud of Minna graduating from University of Maryland today. 



And in only 3 1/2 years…record time, while she worked an internship too.



With a major in communication, please G-d she will go out as the keynote speaker said, “the glue that mends broken dialogue” in society.  



Communications comes from community…from marketing and branding to public relations and diplomacy, communications is key in everything we do from vetting ideas, innovating, decision making, teamwork, and even social media. 



Lots of luck in your future and may Hashem bless you in all that you do.
