This morning i went on Huff Post Live to talk about my new article, “How to answer the question: What are you going to do after you graduate?”

I remember waking up covered in my own stress sweat, back then, haunted by how the heck i was going to answer that question when i absolutely no idea what i wanted to be when i “grew up” let alone what i wanted to do after the summer months passed and i could no longer hide inside the scapegoat remark of “Oh, i’m just taking the summer off.”

In this interview, i chat about how while that question makes us want to scream out a big “I HAVE NO IDEA – LEAVE ME ALONE!”

It’s definitely a question that wakes us up and makes us think. And to be honest, reinvents its self to come back and haunt us later on in our lives.


Watch it below! My interview starts at 7:48

Thirty seconds before i went live:

-The fire alarm went off in my building

-I realized i had blood red lipstick on my teeth

-My audio went wild and i lost connection – but the team at Huff Post figured out how to save the day (thank you, technology backup)


Hi – I’m Jen Glantz! It’s really nice to e-meet you.

I wish we could high-five, even hug hello in person – and maybe someday soon we’ll have that chance. But until then, welcome to my website. It’s my most favorite place in the world (beside home, Forever21, and the library – of course). I hope you’ll click around a bit – and read something you like. And if you do, come back again! Or better yet, click the subscribe button – on the top right – and i’ll send you an email on Monday Mornings with tips and fun articles to help kick your butt out of bed.


I’m Jen Glantz. I’ve been a published writer for over 13 years, spilling my words into magazines (ranging from style to scuba diving), newspapers, websites and even this one time, a speech, for someone who didn’t speak a word of English. What drives my words, my site, my writing, is the power of relating to people. I find that many people, especially young girls, feel so alone and quite often they feel embarrassed. I want to shatter those feelings! I want them to read what I write and understand that it’s okay to be a little outside of the box, but most importantly, that it is okay to just be who they are.
