Career Articles of the Week: Career Shmeer 9/10/10

by Marc Luber

Welcome to the 7th installment of the Career Shmeer, where you’ll find links to great career articles from the past week (or so). Careers Out There is 9 years old today! Well, kind of. In the summer of 2001, I returned home to Chicago to take care of my mom when she was diagnosed with terminal cancer. By September, I needed a mental health break so I flew to LA to visit friends and check in on my apartment. When out with a group of friends for dinner, I was introduced to my friend Stacy’s new boyfriend Cameron, a professional cellist. I was asking him a million questions (as I’m prone to do when meeting new people) about what it means to be a professional cellist…until the whole group said “enough already” and suggested I just get a talk show where I ask people questions about their careers. Intrigued, I borrowed a pen from the waitress and wrote the idea down on a cocktail napkin. Hours later, I was woken up by my dad calling about the World Trade Center…

Fun Stuff For Your Shmeer

  • Jumping the Shark: The Happy Days Episode – My fellow U of Michigan alum Jon Hein is the guy who made this phrase famous. It refers to the moment when anything turns a corner to begin its decline….and comes from the ridiculous, corner-turning episode of my favorite childhood TV show “Happy Days” when Fonzie went water skiing and jumped over a shark. This article analyzing the jumping the shark phenomenon was written by the same guy who wrote that original “Happy Days” episode! For the record, as a kid I wore Fonzie PJs to sleep and carried a Fonzie lunchbox to school!
  • Anatomy of a Concert Ticket – If you’re a concert-goer like me, you’ll find this info from Digital Music News to be very interesting.
