April Roundup

This month the MCG team is proud to say we survived the launch of the “New & Improved” Ms. Career Girl!  Coordinating a slew of editorial changes and new technology among a team of 12 busy girls from cities across the US was definitely a challenge but also a lot of fun. We’re super excited about some series and content we have in the works!

To read more about Ms. Career Girl’s motivation behind improving the site, check out the post below.  We are on a mission to help career-oriented women style all areas of their lives – not just work.

Why You Should Be on a Mission to Style Your Life

This month we tackled a few of our readers’ tough questions via Ask MCG.  We gave you some Style and Beauty advice, shared a few real stories of our own, we showed you how you could makeover your cubicle and introduced you to two AMAZING real career girls. We even addressed friendship breakups and technology’s role in our romantic relationships.  We also kicked off our Money Makeover series with the help of our money columnist Shannon and her employer ReadyForZero.com.
