    So it comes up a lot in interviews, when they ask you to tell them about something that you find interesting in the news.

    What is a good topic to talk about when asked this? Obviously a business one... but which one?

    If you just want to suck up, then something related to their business. If you're applying for a job in account, then talk about an accounting firm going under.

    "An 11-year-old Minneapolis boy understands the meaning behind "dress for success." For the past three years, Ethan Esparza has run a lemonade stand from his grandmother's front yard, wearing a suit and tie almost daily. "When the people saw me, they just really thought it was cute," Esparza said. "I got a lot of money, so I thought, ‘Maybe I’ll wear a suit every time I do a lemonade stand.'" Charging a quarter a cup plus getting tips, a good day nets him $40, compared to the $5 he made the day he just wore a T-shirt. The young entrepreneur, who has 12 suits, said he’s earned around $1,500 thus far."

    Quite interesting actually. I remember when I was walking through Bank station and there was some guy handing out leaflets in a suit, normally I'd just walk past him but I took a leaflet and so did everyone else..!
