Life Hacks by Bullish Readers
Some of our favorites include:
On How to Dress for Work:
"Figure out where in your town affluent women who leave professional jobs to become stay-at-home moms live. Go to the thrift stores in that part of town for your professional work wardrobe.” - Alex M., 27, Washington, DC, Editor
On Getting Hired:
“When you go to the interview, pretend that you already work there and these people just want to talk to you about a project they want to pull you onto, because they want your skills. This will give you the calm, confident, friendly energy you need to come across well.”- Meg A., 36, Washington DC, International Development
On Getting People To Do What You Want:
“The best email tip I ever got was that if someone doesn't respond to an email, simply copy and resend it word-for-word, with no note or anything, as if the original email had never been sent. So far I have always gotten immediate replies (& apologies), perhaps because it is such a bizarre thing to do. Much more effective and less humiliating than writing a separate, "Hey,... just wondering if you ever got my email….?””- Katie L., 31, Freelance editor
Take a cue from the improv "yes and” philosophy. If you start with "yes and" ("you're right and" also works) you can finish the sentence with the complete opposite of what they said and people feel appreciated. Note this works better when you also actually appreciate them.” - Kate I., 33, Director
Be willing to walk away. You cannot be desperate. You just can't. Which is so hard because sometimes you ARE DESPERATE. Seriously though, have a walking away plan. Even if it is crazy like living in the woods. Just hold it in your heart. "I would rather live in the woods than get pushed around." Find strength in that. - Carlee N., 25, Kirkland, Problem Crusher
