Michael Palm, 24, Uptown. Industry: Film & television
What's your dream job?: Cinematographer
Relevant experience: Wide Awake Films, a Kansas City video production company.
What's your top tip for living cheaply in Chicago?: Learn to cook. It's cheaper than going out and impressive with the ladies.
Tell us about your most bizarre Chicago experience: There is this screwball lady on the Red Line who notifies me of how ugly I am. This has almost become a weekly occurrence.
Craziest interview so far?: At an electronics store, they had all the applicants stand in a crammed hallway. This one random kid started hyperventilating.
