From the Author
After more than a decade in the human resources field, including work as a college recruiter, I kept seeing the same things over and over again with our recent high school and college graduates. Our new hires were bright in their subject matter fields, but they were often missing some critical life skills, or soft skills, that are necessary to be successful over the long haul.
It occurred to me that many of these skills aren't being taught in the classroom. In fact, many of us learned these skills in the "school of hard knocks." Rather than expecting these young professionals to know everything as they enter the workforce, I decided to write this guidebook, with the input of several other business professionals, to equip them with the skills necessary to be successful.
Destination Real World: Success after Graduation provides 25 tips to help new college graduates navigate through the challenges of finding and keeping their first jobs and living on their own.
