Looking for an Internship or First Job? This Site Will Hook You Up!
Finding a job can be a full-time job — and if it’s your first job? Or an internship? Whoa. Not to freak you out or anything, but there’s hunting for job postings across a million different sites, putting together a flawless resume, cover letter, portfolio. And then the wait. And wondering — did they get my resume? Does it look just like everyone else’s? Was my cover letter lame? But not anymore. Career Sushi is like the online career center of your dreams. It makes finding, applying to and GETTING internships or entry to mid-level jobs a cinch. And actually kinda fun!
The site is a one-stop shop for all of your internship and job needs. It all starts with a resume and Career Sushi’s system promises yours will stand out from a boring paper rez. You make a digital profile on the site that includes a picture, portfolio and a visual, interactive timeline of your experience. Once you’re all set up, your profile lives on the site for employers to find, or you can apply directly to the jobs you’re interested in. And don’t worry, if you’re going for a more traditional company, Career Sushi lets you print out your digital resume.
Career Sushi plays host to companies too — over 12,000 with new jobs posting EVERY hour in categories like film, fashion, music, advertising, publishing, nonprofit. Follow dream employers like Vera Wang, Paramount Pictures, Ellen Degeneres to apply for new positions posted with one click that gets your digital profile, cover letter and application in front of them. So many jobs, so little time, right!? Accurate job descriptions allow you to “be picky” because, of course, interest in the right job is just as important as their interest in you.
And guess what? Just like LinkedIn, when someone views your application, you get a notification that your profile has been looked at — no more guessing if someone actually saw your resume. You have proof! You can track all of your profile’s stats and ask questions with Career Sushi’s on-site email. Even better, get advice with Q&As from industry leaders like Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes, Gilt Groupe CEO Michelle Peluso, Funny or Die Prez Mike Farah. Who knows, one of them could be your future boss. So what are you waiting for? Go find a new job, your dream job or the sweetest summer internship. Ever.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
