Yelena Shuster graduated magna cum laude from Columbia University in May 2009. Sometimes, she can afford underwear.
Over the years, she’s written political features for The Moscow Times, celeb-studded party reports for New York magazine, and tongue-in-cheek personal essays for HuffPo. (See more resume fodder and my portfolio.)
Her parents in San Francisco want her to get a job or go home still want her to go home.
10-year (!) update: Yelena now runs her own business as a copywriter and Admissions Essay Guru. If you’re looking for a college essay editor, she helps edit student admissions essays, resumes, waitlist letters, and more at TheAdmissonsGuru.com).
If you too are Ivy leagued and Unemployed (or just want to schmooze), please share your thoughts (rants, haikus, letters of complaint) here.
