When in doubt
For young people who find academia, the perfect job and social status elusive, there's Faking It: How to Seem Like a Better Person Without Actually Improving Yourself from CollegeHumor.com contributors Amir Blumenfeld, Ethan Trex and Neel Shah. Whether it's wearing a sweatshirt from an Ivy League school you never attended or carrying a dog-eared copy of a classic you never actually read, The important thing isn't who you are; it's who people think you are. Irreverent humor that mocks both the slacker lifestyle and the Uber professional suggests how to skimp on group projects, talk like you have an MBA, fake an injury to get out of playing sports, and appear to be well-cultured. Faking It is a must for the college grad who needs a good laugh while transitioning into the real world.
