Overview

Today's college grads face a new set of challenges brought on by a sluggish job market, changing technology, and staggering amounts of debt. The rules have changed since their parents were in school, leaving young adults at a loss for advice that addresses their immediate concerns as well as the big-picture questions with which each generation of young adults must contend.

Life coach Ken Jedding has spent the past decade talking one-on-one with college students and graduates across the country in his workshops and lectures. In Higher Education, he provides a fresh, modern guidebook to postcollegiate life that addresses the issues and concerns he hears voiced most often.From the lofty What is my purpose in life?, to the practical How can I land my dream job?, to the increasingly common (if somewhat terrifying) How did I wind up back in my parents' house?, Jedding's valuable insight, wisdom, and humor provide a much-needed roadmap for the journey that is only just beginning.

The stress affecting today's youth is not the same as generations before. The biggest worry concerning most is the amount of debt they will be in. There are other concerns that are just as important, such as, how do know if I'm making the right career choice? Will I make enough money to pay back my loans? What can I do to make sure that I don't end up sleeping on someone's couch for the rest of my life? Ken is a life coach who has some special insight for today's young adults. He tackles the tough questions that keep college kids up at night. He's funny, smart and likable. It's obvious that he wants to help remove some unneeded stress and guide college bound students into the future. This would be the perfect graduation present.
