Earlier this month, on campus recruiting was happening at Penn.  As you'll see in the vlog above and below, nothing seemed to come of it for this senior.  Was it the tough Financial market or his GPA? What's a college senior to do? Listen to Jordan's vlog to listen to his thoughts!


University of PennsylvaniaThis reminds me of when I was a senior and we had the old fashioned "drop" boxes where you went to Career Services and literally dropped your resume in the appropriate wooden box slots.  I believe these days everything is electronic.

...Anyway, back in the day, I think I got one interview with some marketing company and tried to convince them why I'd be good for the company.  At the time I remember I wasn't even convincing myself as my real plan at the time was to move out to Los Angeles and try the whole entertainment (acting/writing) path. Read my advice and others' advice about pursuing a career in writing.

More of my Now and Then Thursday posts here!

Yesterday I posted about some alumni that created four political viral videos that have gotten over 1 million hits!

Now news of more politically themed viral videos from undergrads! A few weeks back, there was a celebrity filled "don't vote" video that hit the web (below) ...and now Penn students have decided to create their own version of it. Check it out above!

Penn just put out this great video detailing "the undergraduate experience at the University of Pennsylvania". Great for any Penn prospect ...or alum looking to relive some of their golden days at Penn.

I remember the videoTAPE that was sent to me when I was in high school. If memory serves me correctly this video seems way more cinematic and engaging! Great work Admissions and Alumni Relations!

On November 4th, Californians will be asked to make a monumental civil rights decision around the issue of same-sex marriage.

Last week, three Los Angeles based Penn alumni decided to take action against this Proposition 8.  Executive producers Todd Shotz (C'96) and Andrew Oldershaw (C'02), as well as writer/director  Dan Kay (C'97) created four very viral PSAs against this proposition including the talents of Margaret Cho and Molly Ringwald.  FYI, Dan Kay wrote and directed the one with Margaret Cho (see above).

Since they debuted these videos, they have gotten over a million hits on Perez Hilton, Huffington Post, People.com, and E! Online. Yesterday, Wolf Blitzer showed one of them on CNN. Because of the response, they're already deep into pre-production on more.

Per Todd, "We could not have hoped for more coverage to add our support to this campaign. Enjoy! And of course, please vote NO on Prop 8."

The Amazing Race

Recently, I chatted a bit with Amazing Race contestant (still in the game!), Sarah Leshner (C'98, W'01) after my post about her HERE.

...On why and how she tried out for The Amazing Race:
"A friend suggested to me that I apply for the Amazing Race given that I love to travel, am spontaneous, pretty fearless... so my boyfriend and I looked up online how to apply, but NEVER thought we'd be selected! We mailed a video into a PO Box in Los Angeles, and I figured that's just not the way teams are actually chosen. 2 months later, we got a call that our tape had "caught their eye" and it was a whirlwind after that. 2 months of phone interviews, a second video, and a week-long stay in LA doing interviews and tests secured our spot among the 11 teams :)"
...On what it's like being recognized:
"Getting recognized has been fun... a girl came up to me in the bar on Saturday and just said "OMG, are you Sarah?" Hilarious :)"

Check out the drama Sarah and Terrence got into from 2 weeks ago: "After finally getting in their taxi, Terence and Sarah can't believe how much time they lost"

Gabriel Mann and Grey's Anatomy
If you recall, Gabriel Mann (C'95, Off the Beat) and his group The Rescues' acoustic version of their song "Crazy Ever After" was on the season premiere of Grey's Anatomy.

Well, the producers must have loved this group's music because another song of theirs was featured in last Thursday's episode too! This one comes as a relief during a very funny and awkward moment during Callie and Dr. Hahn's first date as "new lesbians"! Check out minute :56 above and you'll see what I'm talking about!



Get "My Heart With You"
