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.

Motivational Quote: Prove Them Wrong

Posted by LIM College on Fri, Sep 16, 2016 @ 12:30 PM

by Sonal Agarwal

The quote that has inspired me the most and continues to inspire me every day is “Prove them wrong.” Three words, with the most powerful message ever.

“Them” is everyone around you who doubted you. Everyone who had second thoughts about your caliber. Everyone who judged you for not doing things their way or must I say, the “traditional” way.

How to Mind Your “Own” Business at Work

Posted by LIM College on Thu, Sep 08, 2016 @ 01:29 PM

by Sonal Agarwal

Minding your own business at work? What’s that supposed to mean? How can anyone not be interested in knowing why their colleague was fired? Or who’s making more money than you?

We’re human beings and this is what we do. Talk, and most of the times, talk about other people and what they do. But is this a good practice at work? I don’t think so.

Online Master's Degree Programs at LIM College Parallel Innovative Changes in the Industry

Posted by LIM College on Thu, Jul 21, 2016 @ 03:46 PM

by Jacqueline Jenkins, Dean of Graduate Studies 

The fashion industry is experiencing a series of business changes. Innovative strategies are replacing traditional business models to leverage a company’s social media, technology and customer engagement processes.

Think of Rent the Runway; they changed the styling industry by renting clothes to customers online that might not have been affordable otherwise.

Large retailers are seeking new ways to reach their consumers through in-store experiences such as Macy’s new store concepts. Nordstrom acquired fashion and technology companies to enhance their online and their brick-and-mortar presence simultaneously. One of the most impactful changes is Amazon’s push for same-day delivery for almost any product category for Amazon Prime members.

Take a Break from Social Media this Summer

Posted by LIM College on Thu, Jul 21, 2016 @ 01:50 PM

by Mary Beth Maslowski

You’re on your phone, a lot, right? Gotta check your Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter accounts, your emails, maybe even Pokemon Go. So with all that and more going on, doesn’t it seem like you’ve ALWAYS got your face in a screen?

How many times has someone engrossed in checking emails bumped into you as you walk down the street? (Or, how many times have you walked into another person as you check out Kimye’s latest exploits?) ;-)

Pickler & Co - A Success Story

Posted by LIM College on Wed, Jul 20, 2016 @ 02:42 PM

by Edel Singh

It was the late summer of 2015 when Pickler & Co started to become a known presence in Midtown East, which was a big step for lifelong friends Eric Haber and David Lowenstein. This also wasn't the first time they've worked together in the food industry.

The name originated from their previous venture where they had introduced pickled onions to the menu. David began calling Eric "The Pickler" because of Eric's fondness for preparing the pickled onions and Batman comics, which features famous villains like the Riddler and the Joker.

As pickled food is a major part of the menu, they stuck with the name. It’s simple, memorable and representative of the concept.
