How to Start Your Day at Work

Posted by LIM College on Fri, Oct 21, 2016 @ 03:37 PM

by Sonal Agarwal

This may not seem important, but from my experience the way you start your day at work greatly affects your personal mood and overall performance through the day. Keep in mind that what you give out to the universe is exactly what you will receive back. Give love, get love. (Most of the times, if you’re lucky). 

I make it a point to always start my day greeting everyone with a highly enthusiastic “Good Morning” and a smile. So what if everybody doesn't respond in kind. It is all about the vibes. You never know, but you might actually cheer up a co-worker who’s had a terrible night.

Right now I am fortunate enough to be interning at Jimmy Choo. I found the internship through the LIM College Online Job and Internship Posting site – Simplicity.

Some of my key responsibility areas include reporting, assisting with open-to-buy plans, and reorders for the regions of North America and Canada. We are a pretty small team consisting of a planner, buyer, merchandiser, and assistants for each person and my work entails working closely with everyone in the team.

Dealing with Work-related Depression

Posted by LIM College on Tue, Oct 11, 2016 @ 04:30 PM

by Sonal Agarwal

What is depression? First of all, it's a temporary phase and, as per my understanding, depression is a state of mind where you are not happy with where you are or the way things in your life are going. 

During this time of our lives, we are constantly setting career goals, looking for internships, managing personal and professional relationships, etc. And when we have trouble at work and are not able to achieve what we want, we might see ourselves in a situation where nothing seems to go right.

Grad Student in NYC: How to Beat the Mean Streets of NYC

by Aryelle Santos

How's life treating you in NYC? It can be a jungle out there! Below are some tips on surviving the mean streets of New York City!

Wear comfortable shoes. Ladies, I know that we go to a fashion school, but leave the heels at home! It is not practical to be walking around the city in 3+ or 6-inch heels or even your most “comfortable” wedges. Trust me, any type of heel will hurt your feet just by walking around the city.

Tips for Grad Students in NYC

Posted by LIM College on Wed, Sep 21, 2016 @ 12:30 PM

by Samantha Schechter

I am just one out of nearly 8.5 million people that gets to call New York City home. It seems a bit strange to call a place “home” after only living here a few weeks, right?

With every subway ride and person I pass by, it feels more and more like home. As the days progress, I feel myself acquiring more skills of a typical New Yorker.
