The Big Kid Christmas List

Photo from
It’s holiday shopping time, and Black Friday is just around the corner.  Meaning it is time to start making a list and checking it twice this winter, with gifts that you will need for your upcoming adventure into the job market.  Check out these great gift ideas to ask for from friends and family. 

External Hard Drive: When commuting to and from work you may want to take some of your work home with you without having to tote around a cumbersome laptop.  With an external hard drive that is small, light and stylish you can take your entire life’s work with you from the office to home.

Timepiece:  Most professionals stress the importance of wearing a watch during interviews to show your future employers you are a responsible and proactive professional.

Professional Clothing:  Suites and dress clothes can be expensive, so what better time to ask for them than Christmas.  Your spring semester of college is interview season, so get prepared during the holidays for your upcoming interviews by shopping for a few business casual outfits to wear. 

Smartphone:  Time to upgrade your phone from your Nokia flip to a Smartphone with Internet access.  Stay on top of your e-mails when checking for job opportunities with trendy new Smartphones that are reasonably priced.

Coffee Machine:  It is no doubt you will need a morning wake up call, when you are no longer dreading your 6 to 9 p.m. class, but instead dreading your 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. work day.  Save money by not venturing to Starbucks before your early shift, by making your own coffee at home with some of your favorite brews.
