Ninja Cats | Babble Pets -
I have grown up with cats all my life and have always thought there was something just a bit extra special about them. They seem to know what you’re thinking before you even know what you’re thinking and have this way about them. They can sneak up on you when you didn’t even know they were around, they fit into places you would put money on would be impossible and they climb like nobody’s business. That sounds a lot like something else — the cunning abilities of real life ninjas. They must have learned their skills from something — their moves and skills inspired by something the studies hard. My guess, cats are the inspiration because no one could teach a cat to be this awesome — it just oozes out of them. - Jesse B

How to Get a Job in Publishing - Publishing Trends -
I really wanted to get into publishing. Like, a lot. Never mind that the industry is slowly dying, the economy sucks, I had zero experience and the pay is (and always will be) crap. No, I’m a book lover, and in my naïve—but enthusiastic—mindset, I thought that was all I needed. So I spent the three months after my May graduation carefully editing my resume, crafting the perfect cover letter, and applying for every single job at every single publisher in New York. I stalked mediabistro and bookjobs, made a ton of contacts and . . . well, that was pretty much it. I had one interview in 3 months. - Jesse B

In a Tough Economic Environment, Do You Need a Master’s Degree to Succeed? | Young to Publishing Group -
Entry-level publishing professionals are many things: determined go-getters, expert multitaskers, and unabashed book lovers. Transitioning from an undergraduate literature major to an assistant in the publishing industry is a challenging yet rewarding process. For some, diving headfirst into the industry is an education unto itself. But for others, a master’s degree in publishing or a related field provides a competitive edge and broad-based knowledge of the ever evolving marketplace. While the decision to pursue a master’s degree holds broad appeal for young publishing professionals (have you ever met an editorial assistant who doesn’t want to go back to school?), the road to an advanced degree is a serious investment of time, money, and energy and may not be the right choice for everyone. - Jesse B
