  1. I recently came upon your name on MadameNoire which then led me to your blog. I read your two posts about looking for a job and then eventually finding one. I graduated last year with my bachelor’s in journalism and I am pursuing my masters in new media journalism PLEASE tell me how did you do how did you manage to survive this dreaded job search in such a competitive market. Any tips you can give because that boat you were once in I am now in and girl it is sinking and sinking fast right along with all my gusto for this field.


  2. After reading your article, “Should Women Keep Their Married Name After a Divorce?” I think you would make a great guest on HuffPost Live. We are hosting a segment about marital statuses/name changes and we would love for you to join us via webcam tomorrow (9/11/2012) at 2:30pm EST. If interested, please let me know. Thanks!


  3. Hi Alicia! I love your work. Re: MIGHT DON’T MAKE IT: WHY I QUIT A NEW JOB I HATED. After a month of repeatedly contemplating a bullet through my brain because of my first god forsaken job, I realized I could take the high road and quit before I’m in to deep. The question is, didn’t your new employer asked you why you didn’t stick around long for your first job?
