Students are able to apply critical thinking to real-life situations.

Internships provide college students a competitive edge in this tight economy. Because employers are embracing more conservative hiring practices as a result of the economic troubles, internships frequently serve as a direct entry into the workforce. If an employer is pleased with an intern’s work, upon graduation, that student may have a job offer waiting while others are starting their job search. Read the rest of this entry »

At Snikl.com, we specialize in finding stuff geared toward guys. So who better to help you outfit the ultimate guy’s dorm room than the guys at Snikl.

offi and coosh loungeWhen it comes to a dorm room that really tells everyone you’re a guy (if they didn’t already know), you’re going to need a few things to help accomplish that. The only things that are probably off limits are a hot plate, because your RA will say so, and offensive incense, because you need to try to keep the peace with your roommate.

Seating. Sure, you’ve got the twin extra-long bed and the circa 1970s office chair. But if you really want to kick back after a long day on campus, give the Offi & Co. Coosh Lounge and Ottoman a try.
