I guess I'd start him lower down the chain of command, if I were Rich Dad, but who knows, he might be good. Might as well get him prepped for the family business early.
you mean give him the chance to be a part of the family business before it doesn't exist anymore? haha

Who cares? I mean, this is Rolling Stone letting a 22 year old take charge of their website. I mean, is it not conceivable to think that maybe a young person fresh out of college might be the best thing to keep fresh with what's going on in music? And who better to take than to hire from within?
do you know what he studied in college? it looks like he went to brown but from what i read, it wasn't for journalism. maybe it was for another media degree but do we know? hiring someone out of college without significant work experience is a pretty big risk. it's not like they hired a 22-year-old who has done something remarkable either. why do you think he'd be good at this job? i'm 22 and i just graduated college as well. do we know how much experience he has? it looks like he's only contributed six things to the website that he took over in the last six years combined. hiring a 22-year-old is not a bad idea, but this appears to be a 22-year-old who had access to a pretty enormous outlet and just decided to not really take the initiative to utilize it.

So? I'm saying that it's a music publication's website. I really don't know why this matters. Sure it's a risk, but it's not the dumbest thing ever.

You say "website" like it's some secondary priority or something. Is Rolling Stone's print edition going to outlast its website? Do you know something the rest of us don't?

And for this thread to criticize this decision like the guy is some 22 year old moron? Does everyone else know something Rolling Stone doesn't?

must be nice to have a big daddy to give his son a cushy job with a corner office and prestige. some people will never know what its like to work your way from the bottom of a barrel of shit to the top.
most people will never know what it's like to start at the bottom of the barrel of shit and rise to the top, most people will stay at the bottom.
