What's a Potini?
A Potini is hard to describe and impossible to forget. It's as warm and comforting as a bowl of mashed potatoes...as fresh and exciting as a new-age martini...and to top it off, we were able to customize our Potini with Bordelaise Sauce, roasted pumpkin, caramelized onions, salsa/sour cream, bacon,and roasted chestnuts.
I strongly recommend a good Potini for your next home or office party!
This New Years Eve Cumberland Farms is making it a little easier to say so-long to 2007 and hello to 2008 by helping their customers keep alert and awake on the road into the wee hours of 2008. That’s why from 5 pm on New Years Eve until 5 am on New Years Day all Cumberland Farms locations will be giving away a cup of piping hot coffee - on the house.
Cumberland Farms is encouraging drivers to take advantage of this community service. Indeed fatigue on the road is a dangerous issue. The National Sleep Foundation says the combination of caffeine and naps is one of the best ways to help fight drowsiness, which they cite as a leading cause of accidents.
“We want to thank our customers this holiday season,” said Ari Haseotes, Vice President of Marketing for Cumberland Farms. “The goal of our free coffee program is to help them stay alert, and keep safe on the roads.”
The free coffee is available at all Cumberland Farms stores across the Northeast and Florida except for those with Dunkin Donuts service.

It's not. The first step is not to think of yourself in terms of your specific degree. Many companies do not hire students because of their specific degrees - instead they use job applicants' skills as criteria for filling positions.
So, instead of asking, "What are good jobs for English majors?" ask, "What are my passions and strengths? What skills do I have? What do I want to be doing in my job?" The first step in responding to these questions is to honestly address what you love to do. What fascinates you? What do you find compelling and fulfilling? Once you've answered these questions, address what skills you can bring to the work place. Also, when you assess your skills, don't forget the skills you gained from doing volunteer and extra-curricular work.
