NYT on Starting a Your First Job
So the “most e-mailed” story of the day on The New York Times website is A Primer for Young People Starting Their First Job. If any NYT editors are reading this, listen up: If you want to compete with Gradspot.com, you’re going to be picking up your teeth with a broken arm. It’s not the type of party.
I’m joking, course: The Times loves recent grads almost as much as it loves Obama, and this piece provides a nice overview of three issues that are bound to confuse anyone new to the workforce: healthcare, retirement plans, and taxes. Check it out if you’re just starting a job or switching employers.
