Scientists have just discovered a new massive ring around Saturn. The ring starts 3.7 million miles away from Saturn, and extends another 7.4 million miles. The diameter of the ring is equivalent to 300 Saturns lined up side by side, making the ring almost as large as our national debt. So what does Saturn’s newly discovered ring have to do with personal finance and the Money Hacks carnival? Absolutely nothing, but it’s really cool.
So now on to the carnivals. We had some really great submissions this week, which have been loosely organized by topic to make navigating the articles a little easier. I’ve chose several submissions as editor’s pick, which are listed first. Enjoy!

Editor’s Note: You may have noticed that I’ve included three submissions from Job Profiles (one is above as an editor’s pick). The general rule of carnivals is that only one submission per blog will be included. But these three resources may prove very helpful for those looking for work, so I’ve broken the rule this week and included all three.
