"I don't think I would have been able to get this CEO job if I hadn't shaved my head," says Adams. Adams has supplemented his makeover by trading in his button-down shirts for T-shirts, making sure he owns the latest gadgets, and getting an eyelid lift.

For her first interview at Facebook, Sally Sadosky headed to a boutique popular with women 20 years her junior for advice on "something to look hip" and "blend in."

TLC Show Idea: Extreme Job Seekers.

Video Supercut Idea: References to The Wire on other television shows. I can think of at least 10. In the past 10 days alone: Fresh Meat and How I Met Your Mother.

Idea: A found audio podcast, like a found footage film, but a series of audio recordings.

Idea: Cable providers subsidize channel packages like smartphones. You can order the Viacom package (MTV, MTV2, BET, CMT, Comedy Central, Logo, Nickelodeon, Spike, TeenNick, VH1) for $10/month with a two year contract, or you can order Viacom channels à la carte for $3/month each.

Just want MTV and BET? $6/month, no early termination fee.
