Almost at New York Fashion Week Sept 8, 2007

Today I unexpectedly ran into New York Fashion Week at Bryant Park. I was in the city with the wife and kids to visit with friends visiting NY from Boston. Searching for a place to rest, we landed in Bryant Park. For someone that manages several fashion industry websites, one would have thought that I would be more privy to what goes on at Bryant Park during fashion week. Anyway, I must say, it was an exciting atmosphere. Here are a photo photos I snapped with my tiny…

So last night I worked on sprucing up my resume (due for class today) and boy oh boy....I hadn't updated it since before I started working at S & K, and I did not realize how many additional skills I had acquired! I had trouble keeping it to just one page since I have a lot of experience (for someone my age, at least). Just got to see what the career counciler thinks of it now!

I've been talking to more people and trying to make more contacts....I've been doing a lot of research… Continue
