Someone probably told you that wearing a tie is a sign that you've given up on being cool. In some cases, that's probably true. But if the difference between getting a job and eating Top Ramen for another month comes down to a simple tie, maybe cool is overrated. If working indoors isn't your deal, get a job on a crab boat or defy gravity while racing around a track, all in today's app deals.
