The perfect graduation gift! I have found my new go to gift for college graduates! You’ve Graduated. Now What? has practical, timely advice for young adults. Not only is this a great read for new graduates, but for those trying to re-enter the work force. I wish I had read this when I was interviewing. The tone of the book is honest and straight-forward; it feels like you are getting solid advice from a wise best friend.
Worthwhile advice for job-seekers. I found this guide to be an entertaining read and very helpful for the intended reader — recent grads at both the high school and college level. As a more seasoned reader, it gave me pause to realize how different the job market is now. It was helpful to me to see the similarities and differences in how younger employers and entrepreneurs are thinking. The book was short enough not to lose the interest of the reader, yet long enough to get some very important points across to those looking for jobs; how to dress, how to talk, how to communicate via email and how to follow through. It was filled with anecdotes and examples that should be helpful to readers of all ages. I have recommended this book for youth groups, teachers, counselors, parents as well as for recent grads….anything that will help get young folks hired!
A Gem. This book is a little gem. It has sage advice for anyone looking for a job, not just recent graduates, although I’m sure recent graduates will really connect with the authors. The thing I liked best was the anecdotes from their experiences on both sides of the interviewer’s table. When looking for a job, they were just as eager and nervous as the rest of us. On the other hand, they show that the interviewer is also someone like us, trying to find, in a very short time, someone who will thrive and help them thrive. There are plenty of great tips (spelling, thank you notes). I loved it!
Great Concise Advice! This is a brief guide with great pointers for a modern job market. It seems to be written from the perspectives of co-authors with different experiences in their attempts to enter the workforce. It is a read that is brief enough to not overwhelm new graduates or anyone changing careers. Enjoy!

Very Well Written and Concise. This well written book is definitely a must have not only for recent graduates but for anyone seeking employment. It provides so much information without it being overwhelming. The authors provided some of their personal experiences as well. Although I plan to give a copy of this book to a cousin who is currently attending college, I found that in this economy, with unexpected layoffs, even after being in what one may consider a stable job, that this book is extremely useful.
