Today, the Young Money blog series returns to crafting profiles of organizations that young professionals in Western New York can get involved in by examining Social Media Club Buffalo.
I had a chance to chat with recently elected president Christina Singh about the club, how to get involved and of course their signature event, Social Media Day.
Not long after moving to…

Even as Buffalo becomes more ethnically diverse, cultures that have been rooted here for centuries remain present and vibrant—I think of the Polish Dyngus Day, the Irish St. Patrick’s Day Parade and the German Oktoberfest.
Perhaps the numbers and sway of these populations have naturally waned—they’ve become more niche and blended than when they first arrived. It’s the nature of a…
It’s been quite some time since I’ve opened up the Young Money mailbag to answer reader questions. I’ve found a few issues that align perfectly with the season and some current events I figure readers might be struggling with as well.
Without further ado, let’s dive right in.
Caitlin - It’s been absolutely frigid lately, but I still need to look like the professional I…

Back in November 2013, Gawker polled its readers nationwide to compare their cities’ trendy neighborhoods with those in Brooklyn—Williamsburg and Bushwick, in particular.
Here’s the question as it was posed on Gawker via author Max Read:

According to the University at Buffalo athletic director Danny White’s twitter account, country artists Joe Nichols and Easton Corbin are among those on the docket to perform before the Bulls’ home football games in the second year of the Tailgate Concert Series.
Excited about 2014 Tailgate Concert series! Students asked for more country, so we open 8/30 with Easton Corbin. Game…
A few months ago, accomplished author and New Yorker staff writer Malcolm Gladwell came to the University at Buffalo as part of the Distinguished Speaker Series.
Leading up to his talk, a lot of the publications on campus highlighted his bio, life story and most of all, his series of books.
I was unable to attend his speech, but I was definitely intrigued by the subjects he has…
Last week, I experienced another first in my professional life – I took a trip for work.
For many of you this might seem like old hat, but as someone who’s previously only worked jobs that have been focused locally, it was uncharted territory for me.
I travel a lot personally, so I figured I had this in the bag. While at the end of the day, travel is travel, there is…

Proposing to a significant other is more-than-likely a nerve-racking experience.
You don’t want the occasion to be cheesy or run-of-the-mill. The special moment craves a personal touch, a well-thought out location and smooth execution. You’ll probably be nervous and may chomp aggressively on your nails.
Despite a few unexpected snags, University…
Maybe you’re like me and don’t find much pleasure in wearing gloves and a warm winter hat (I always lose them!). Or, maybe you’ll admit that your tolerance for subzero temperatures and biting winds simply isn’t very high. Maybe you long for Aruba, the Cayman Islands or even still-pretty-cold West Virginia when Buffalo’s temperature descends below 40 degrees.

It’s a new year, which means many of us are busy making personal resolutions for the year. But how about your professional resolutions? Have you made those yet?
Perhaps even more so than personal resolutions, I think setting career goals at the start of the year is one of the most important things someone can do to further a career.
By thinking about what you want to…
