So Jenn Sipe has totally taken the crown for poetry (or at least shares it with MJ '19 grad Molly Jordan, who oversaw the careers email digest this past year). If you missed Jenn's poem last week, here is  the link:

One serious thing and then something about me. First, particularly to those who just graduated, if you are having trouble with your job search, aren't sure about your resume, want to brainstorm about networking -- PLEASE REACH OUT. See below for the link.

And on non-serious note. I am originally from Memphis and am immensely proud of my hometown. One thing Memphis is definitely known for worldwide BESIDES ELVIS, is our BBQ. Since this is Memorial Day weekend when many backyard chefs will smoke ribs, Boston butts even whole hogs, here is a quick video showcasing many of the best in Memphis. (I am particular to Payne's, Cozy Corner and Central BBQ)
