Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Your orientation guide to the ‘real world’
—The Today Show

The perfect gift for the newly minted college graduate.
—The Post and Courier

“[A] breezy reading experience that’s part chat room, part support group...practical tips on apartment hunting, jobs, money and romance...grads will find enough soul baring to reassure them they’re not alone.”
—Seattle Post-Intelligencer

“[I]t’s real, and from people young enough to still remember the huge transition from college to painful independence.”
—Cleveland Plain Dealer

'By interviewing literally hundreds of recent graduates and other experts, the resulting book reads more like a magazine with tips, tricks, top tens, and mainly quotes from those who've tread the road ahead and come back to share their experiences. Topics of advice range from cooking to etiquette for dining with a boss, from handling loans to hanging laundry, from writing a resume to making time for racquetball...and everything in between. Easy to flip though and glean bits of advice on a particular topic, or just in general, Life After College may become a new grad's best friend.'

—College Recruiter.com

“Although the book is pitched to recent grads, the advice can be used by anyone…”
—McClatchy-Tribune Information Services

This book really covers everything a collage graduate needs to know. How to dress for company events, cooking skills and recipes and money management ideas. There also is a great section on relationships after collage, trust me there is a major difference when it comes to meeting someone in collage and meeting someone in the real world....I really do recommend the book if you are not sure what to do with your life after graduation. It’s also a great gift for any graduate, even if they have a job lined up, there is so much useful information that this book should not be passed up on.

—Savey Spender

What to do the moment you get out of college is the question asked by many a fresh graduate. "Life After College: The New Graduate's Guide" is an advice manual for finding that first job that those years of education were meant to prepare you for. Finding that first home to live alone, graduate school, dealing with having no money, finding love after the ease of college, and more. "Life After College" is chock full and packed cover to cover with information and is a very highly recommended read.

—The Midwest Book Review

The latest book in the wildly popular Hundreds of Heads College Series . At over 400 pages and full of powerful, tested advice, this book is the perfect graduation gift for college grads. With a special editor from CNN, the book focuses on getting and keeping a job, finding the best place to live, choosing the right financial path, adult etiquette, looking for love and graduate school options. The book also contains a special financial "how-to" guide from the American Institute for Economic Research.
