Textul de pe ultima copertă

Earning a bachelor’s degree used to be a near-guarantee of financial stability and professional opportunity. Employers sought out talented graduates, provided them with additional on-the-job training, and set in motion promising career paths. Today, the paradigm has shifted—and employers expect experienced workers who are capable of doing the job from day one. But rarely does the college classroom develop that ability. As a result, a growing number of grads find themselves adrift, thousands of dollars in debt, and facing an uncertain job market, ultimately leading moms and dads to wonder: Why did I pay all that money?
In There Is Life After College, Jeffrey J. Selingo, author of College (Un)bound, provides a step-by-step plan full of practical advice that every young professional can follow to jump-start a career. Full of tips, advice, and insight, There Is Life After College is a wise, commonsense guide for the years from the end of high school through college graduation that will help every student—no matter their major or degree—find real employment.
