THE FIX: Pause for a few seconds before the start of each sentence to compose your thoughts

THE FIX: Pause for a few seconds before the start of each sentence to compose your thoughts. Knowing in advance what you’ll say eliminates the need to stop and think mid-sentence, which is usually when people fall prey to using fillers. 2. QUESTION INFLECTION Do you end every sentence with a question mark? If your voice rises slightly as though you’re constantly asking a question, you could come across as unsure or unconfident. THE FIX: Focus on making your intonation go downwards at the ends of statements.

In 2000 alone, more than one million people in their 20's left the safe confines of their American college campuses and entered the workforce or graduate school. Many had completed internships to get real world experience, or had rented apartments during their final years of school. But the vast majority of recent grads have lived in dorms their entire college career, or otherwise have little experience in living on their own, not knowing anything about what awaited them at the end of their walk across the stage at graduation. In short, they needed the information in "Graduate! Everything You Need to Know to Succeed After College." "Graduate!" is a complete guide to not just surviving, but thriving and living well after college. It includes advice on finding and keeping a job, renting an apartment, living with a roommate, handling money issues including saving, budgeting, and credit, how to decipher health and auto insurance, and even how to decorate, cook, and dress. Chock full of checklists, questionnaires, and samples of key documents, "Graduate!" is the one source that college grads need to do well in the "real world."

All the info in the book was standard, except the last chapter, where it got into other options after graduation. So I only found one relevant chapter for me, but for most people they might find that this book is exactly what they are looking for.

Kristen Gufstason has crafted a nice handbook on the unexpected pitfalls of post-college life. More than that, "Graduate..." is one of the few books in this subject that refuses to take the easy way out by telling college students how scary is the "Real World".

This is really more of a quick reference guide that covers such topics as rent, roommates, the job search and even wardrobe tips. Any college senior would do well by absorbing the information in this book.

This book was so old it really isn't helpful to current grads

Informative, easy to follow and to the point. I liked how the author spilled out what people should expect to see and experience once they leave college. It truely opens your eyes to what was never taught in college. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who has questions on life after graduating college.

This guide gives details regarding all those life issues that face every college graduate and does it with a good sense of humor. Great advice, concise and well written.
