Overview

Each year, 600,000 guys enter college with high hopes and confidence; 240,000 drop out; 360,000 graduate. Only a few have a clue what to do next. Over 1 million parents are praying they don't move back in the house.

There are plenty of books out there that steer guys down the right career path, but they only apply to students who spent their nights studying for finals instead of enjoying life. What good is a 4.0 GPA if you can't hold a conversation with a co-worker?

What's been lacking is a frank, no-nonsense book for the guy who didn't graduate with honors. Life Before Noon features advice on: job skills you are already perfecting, the power of friendship in the work place, selling yourself in the interview, managing your life on little income, and moving out of your parent's house. Sample chapters include "Class and Work Are More Similar Than You Think" and "Hangovers Hurt More Than They Used To".

    "Life Before Noon"....a key to success !

    If you are having difficulty in obtaining employment in your chosen career field, then this book will help turn that around and point you in the right direction. Since college graduates must compete against many for the few available positions in today's declining job market, "Life Before Noon" gives you a leg-up on optimizing your career opportunities by defining and correcting possible problem areas. I highly recommend reading this book to learn how to enhance your personality, appearance, and creativity by targeting major, as well as seemingly mundane, issues to put together a winning package !
