Career Wisdom for New Graduates

(Can’t listen to the podcast? Check it out here)

I wanted to explore an unusual topic for the show – employability for college graduates. Today college graduates face a difficult time finding work that matters. Award winning educator and writer Jonathan Blake Huer discusses what students need to do to be employed when they graduate. He shares wisdom from his book Be Employed When You Graduate.

Topics from the Interview

• Why it’s important to understand yourself before deciding what career you want

• Actions students need to take while in college to get work that matters after graduation

• The importance of volunteering and freelancing

• The elements to create a personal brand

    There’s a more human way to do business.

    In the Social Age, it’s how we engage with customers, collaborators and strategic partners that matters; it’s how we create workplace optimism that sets us apart; it’s how we recruit, retain (and repel) employees that becomes our differentiator. This isn’t a “people first, profits second” movement, but a “profits as a direct result of putting people first” movement.
