About the Book

Career Planning That Works!

More than 50% of recent college grads are unemployed or doing jobs that don’t require a college degree. How do you make sure you score a good job and launch a career you’re excited about?

Need More Successful Job Search Techniques?

Graduate to a Great Job book coverThe problem of post-college unemployment has been reported widely in the press, but these challenges aren’t going away because:

  • Most students, paralyzed by uncertainty and debt, are unprepared for the complexities and demands of the post-recession job market.
  • Since the Great Recession, lots of career planning & job search advice is outdated and obsolete due to changes in technology and new hiring practices.
  • Raised in an online, click-to-communicate world, you may be unaware of the off-line behaviors you need to get employed.
  • Because the job market has changed so much, your parents are at a loss to advise you on effective tactics.
