It’s springtime, and with that comes the cleaning of the CAREEREALISM closet! I found some great t-shirts we had made as part of an internship program I did at the University of New Hampshire and thought it was time to give them away! Send Us Your Snarky One-liners! During the internship, I had students brainstorm catchy phrases that would explain quickly (and with humor) why people should subscribe to CAREEREEALISM.com. Watch this video to learn more: We had some good ones, but ultimately they chose this to put on the back of the t-shirt:

Starting a family is one of the biggest milestones in a person's life. It's in those first few months when a parent can really bond with their newborn and make lifelong memories. However, for some new dads, it can be difficult to juggle being a new parent while remaining dedicated to their career.
