This content was created by Girlboss in partnership with Teal. You know that one Mean Girls scene where the whole school is fighting with each other after Regina George printed out the pages of the Burn Book? Well, that’s basically what it feels like to look for a job these days. Pardon our French… but it’s a bit of a sh*tshow. There is so much noise on LinkedIn and TikTok about job hunting do’s and don’ts. How could you not feel overwhelmed? Hiring managers are ghosting, certain resume designs are a no-go, and you need to know someone at the company or don’t even bother applying. Plus, you ne ..read more

What I Wish I Knew About Making Friends in My 20s

by Kat Go
2w ago
I often think back to a specific day in my early 20s: I was on the train home sometime during my first internship in the city, bawling my eyes out. The sheer veracity of my tears must have had other passengers thinking I’d just been fired from a job, or had my heart broken, or received news about a loved one’s death. It was none of those things. I was crying because of Taylor Swift.  You see, it was around this time that stories of Taylor Swift and her “girl squad” of actresses and Victoria Secret models were everywhere. I’d open Instagram and there’d be a picture of Taylor at some red ca ..read more

How to Turn a Work Friend Into a Real Friend

I met my soulmate at work. Not once, not twice, but three times. I’m not talking about romantic soulmates, but friend soulmates: the kind of women that I’ve always wanted in my corner. The ones that would be there to hype me up before asking my boss for a raise but also to pick up when I’m crying in the middle of the night over a stupid boy. I remember fantasizing about having the relationship that Jane, Sutton and Kat do in The Bold Type. Three 20-something women working together at a fashion magazine—a trope I’ve seen a million times but one that, as a young journalist in her early 20s, I co ..read more

This content was created by Girlboss in partnership with Semrush Social. In case you missed the memo, LinkedIn is cool now? The 21-year-old networking site was once just a tired, stuffy place where you updated your resumé, looked for your next gig and cosplayed as a professional person who wouldn’t dare get wine drunk on a Tuesday night (if only your boss was on your Close Friends). But nowadays? It’s the place where storytelling and unfiltered honesty reign supreme—whether you’re talking about how your breakup is affecting your work life or the BTS of creating your company’s viral marketing c ..read more

This content was created by Girlboss in partnership with Atkins. “Wow, you must be really hungry!” ”Don't eat that, you'll get fat." “I could never have that many carbs.” These are just some of the eye-roll-inducing, unsolicited comments women get when fuelling their bodies (and minding their damn business)—in the corporate lunchroom, at the dinner table with family, and yes, even from strangers. But we’re here to focus on eating at work—and why you might feel self-conscious noshing on your sad desk salad in front of your coworkers. So, we consulted Colette Heimowitz, M.Sc., Atkins’ resident n ..read more
