According to Merriam-Webster, Internship is “a period of undergoing practical instruction in one's job or career.” A lot of people are opposed to internships as many are unpaid or feel they are waste of time. Many would get any type of entry-level job to get extra cash, gain some experience and cruise by through this chapter in their life. A lot of people think an internship is just a position to make coffee for the office. One will ask, "How does making daily coffee runs benefit my career?"Read More
Welcome to Bar Babble. Bar babble is the place where you can have a chance to sit down and chat about business, marketing, career development and wellness with the Old Fashioned Marketing (OFM) team. It is the place where we post topics that are relevant, important, resourceful, and post some topics that no one wants to talk about because of the fear that you will never be understood. Bar Babble is an OFM resource and community where we can vent about anything and everything. We share information to help you become successful not just in your professional life but in your personal life as well. OFM is all about wellness as the present world is all about glorifying the term "busy". But the OFM team are trendsetters and we are now setting a new trend in the workplace to support busy hard-working professionals so they can be the best versions of themselves. Let's bring back joy into the workplace and in our daily lives. No more feeling understood, unheard, uninspired or feeling lonely. We are your business besties, the person you can vent to at the bar after a long day. Does this sound like something that you want to be a part of? We will post new blog posts on Wednesday at 5:00 pm (happy hour) with topics about business, marketing, career development, and wellness. This is the time where we can virtually meet up at the bar, grab a drink and babble about important topics so you can go home feeling refreshed. If there are certain topics that you want to chat about for our next Bar Babble, comment on any blog post or send us an email. We want to make sure we support you in any way.
So, will I see you next Wednesday at 5:00 pm? Grab a drink and let's bar babble.

It has been five years since we have all graduated college and we are all in different points in our lives. We are different people as well. Whatever career path we took, whether we have stayed within that job we got after college, switched companies or even shifted industries, we are all working professionals. We have evolved in our industry and have gotten a sense of insight into the real world. We all have one thing in common (besides our student loans). We are all not fully content in our current employment status. Whether we are job hopping, looking for a new job or just feeling stuck, all of us are tired. What is missing?Read More

For professionals, it is also important to keep traveling.Read More
Once you start working, you realize you spend more time at work than at home. You spend the majority of your time at the office, spending time with your colleagues, in meetings, on the computer, on the phone and meeting new clients. Every industry and even every company is different. But one thing is similar. Your "office" or the location in where you work becomes your second home.Read More
Having a career and a personal life is tough to balance. We live in a society where the more you work, the more hours you spend in the office, the more you are valued. You spent endless nights at the office working overtime no breaks, you hardly are eating or even sleeping. You wake up to emails on your smartphone and pick up fast food in between meetings and on your way home. Time slips away as you meet from one client to the next, answer emails, wrapping up a deadline and then before you know it, it is way past the time that you should be at the office. Did you forget to "namaste" today?Read More
