Hopeful to Hired: How to Score the Job You Want Straight Out of College


Product Description

In today’s job market, only a quarter of college graduates have jobs that are related to their major. Add to that massive amounts of student debt and economic uncertainty, and graduation can feel more like a time of panic than of hope. In the face of this adversity, how can students prepare themselves for career success while still in college?

The secret lies in using college years as an opportunity to build professional networks, improve soft-skills, and create an effective online personal brand, so that students can hit the ground running after graduation.
In Hopeful to Hired, Adam Dince covers everything undergraduate and graduate students need to know now so that they are ready to find their dream job when they begin entering the workforce.

This book proves indispensable not only for college students but for anyone preparing to enter the job hunt—from the military, high school, or even another job. This empowering book will take the dread out of graduation and help lead you seamlessly into your dream job.

    Posted by on 18th Aug 2017

    As a college professor that works extensively with students on job searches, I see great value in Hopeful to Hired. I would like all my advisees to read it and then implement the great suggestions offered by Adam Dince. Navigating the networking and job search process takes thoughtful planning and action. I like that Adam shares positive steps students can take early in their college years to position them for job opportunities upon graduation. The author is successful in his career and is very up to date with how to use social media to support the job search process. I highly recommend the book!
