Written by the journalist on education Jeffrey Selingo this book discusses various aspects of how to optimize college education and experience to be successful in career The rimary The Perfect Murder (Inspector Ghote, premise is that the current college education lags behind the fast development and evolution of the workplace As a result many college graduates face difficulty in finding a job and excel in it The author believes that the modern economy looks for workers with a T shape knowledge structure The works need to have a broad spectrum of abilities including social skills self management lifelong learning and communications They need to make the transition from the structured school environment that depend on external instructions and motivation to the uncertain sometimes chaotic workplace thatrovides much less supervision and guidance They also need to be able to switch specialty uickly and A Touch of Autumn (Pleasures, productively in response to the rapidly changing business and market conditions This is the bar in TOn the other hand employers also expect college graduates to hit the ground running This means that the graduates need to have all or most of the knowledge reuired for aarticular job The T knowledge structure is not rovided by today s colleges which inheres its teaching methods and curriculums from a different age Therefore the author concludes students need to take initiatives and actions to compensate for the college shortcomings and have a successful career after graduationThe book generally follows the steps one would take from high school to college covering the following topics Going directly to college from high school may be the default but not the only choice One may choose to have a gap year to travel and learn to deal with novel and unexpected situations One may even decide to forgo college and go for vocational schools or community college How to choose a college College location is important because it affects one s exposure outside of the classrooms If you have a rofession in mind then look for locations that offer many intern opportunities In college look for hands on learning experiences such as The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters (Chapter 7 Royale) projects and internship Do not just follow the liberal arts curriculum After college graduation maybe you need to fill some skill or knowledge gaps before getting a good job There are many resources such as short training courses boot camps and apprenticerograms to help you do it There are also alternatives to graduate school for gaining advanced skills Other than the traditional college Mr. West programs there are many movements and innovations to deliver college education that is relevant to job skills Otherrograms are flexible to allow for working and studying at the same time In addition to the four year bachelor s Nils program other forms of college education are emerging These new forms supportart time learning and life long learning Relevant skills for finding a job interviews and job search techniues Career The Penguin Book of the British Short Story, Volume 1 planning college is not a goal by itself it is a step in the entire career So think about how to fit a college education into the life long career effort This chapter also includes career choice tipsThis book is a journalistic work Namely it is based on stories than theories or logic The author s advice centers on oneoint make your learning relevant to job seeking and job growth Other than that the book is in large extent driven by the material available to the author This is good in a sense because the book does not appear to have a bias supported by selective evidenceOn the other hand there are some inconsistencies in the book For example in the beginning the author emphasized the importance of critical thinking skills in today s workplace And at some 1915 Pride and Glory - A Tommy Gunn Adventure point later the author said literary courses such ashilosophy and history are an excellent way to cultivate critical thinking However the rest of the book focuses on learning specific job skills such as The Elephantom programming without discussing approaches to strengthen critical thinking skills Fortunately nobody is likely to take all of the advice from the book anyway they are meant for differenteople with different situations So such consistency is unsubstantial My substantial objection is that the book has a very limited scope It focuses on the strategy of finding desirable work after graduation This is not the whole Savage Worlds purpose of college education which is also supposed to help us master new knowledge and take on new responsibilities in our decades of working life It would be beneficial if the author interviewed middle aged workers and retirees to get their take on college education More importantly our benefit from education also includes being better citizens and leading enlightened lives within and without work Therefore not everything we do in college has to be tied to immediate career benefits Not mentioning theseoints may mislead our youngsters when they seek the most meaningful college experienceOverall this is a thoughtful and comprehensive guide to college life I highly recommend it to high school and college students and their A Paixão de Emma parents It didn trepare me at all for the real world Jessica said somewhat abruptly This sentence begins Jessica s description of her experience at one of the US News top 10 national liberal arts colleges in the US The uote from Jeffrey Selingo s new book There Is Life After College What Parents and Students Should Know About Navigating School to Prepare for the Jobs of Tomorrow also captures in dramatic fashion one of Selingo s main themes The book details how schools educators and students should approach education in ways that are significantly different from those of students a generation ago Selingo Short-Form Creative Writing provides useful guidelines for students to achieve success in the increasingly competitive job market Much of what he shares is supported by data that is nestled alongside specific stories of students schools and businesses that seem to be doing things right Selingo does not call so much for disruptive innovation or that other meme for change aaradigm shift he does however outline the ways that a college degree needs to be far than a The Medici Seal piece ofaper that affirms a certain amount of coursework and grades while at the same time A Present for Rose permitting students to follow their blissExploration of course was what college used to be the informative stage between adolescence and adulthood The training for employment we now seem to expect of colleges and universities came later either in graduate school or on the job But today with the cost of college approaching 240000 for four years students and theirarents demand a set of specific skills that can land them a job at graduation They still want the broad education critical thinking writing and communication and analytical reasoning as long as it doesn t come at the expense of outside the classroom hands on experiences Arthritis Common Sense particularly internships Selingo is smart enough to know that the rhetorical battles that takelace weekly between those who want education to be liberal arts based in order to instill what he calls a broad education and those who attempt to demonstrate the need students now have for add on experiences and some depth of understanding about how to solve real Lollipop Lane Soft-dolls problems in the world are not worth the words that are salvoed across the media Like so much else in life there is some truth to bothositions The kinds of students that Selingo describes as ready for the world have come to be known as T Shaped These students have a horizontal line of skills that spans across a broad range of disciplines they also have a vertical line of expertise in one or areas But whereas most Sermons pundits or educators stop the T student description at thisoint Selingo Key to Aten (The Chronicles of Aten, points out one other set of skills students now needThere s to being T shaped than just having breadth and depth however It s also about having balance and the agility toick and choose from a set of knowledge and skills as they are needed Undergraduates need to cultivate T shaped skills to Blossoming prepare for the economy they ll face after graduationSelingo is what some would call a hard taskmaster For him students must develop many skills thanrevious generations of students ever even thought of let alone learned and internalizedAnd yet at the same time there are many in education and in the media who believe there is far too much stress To Honor You Call Us (Man of War placed on students today both in high school and college They have aoint Studies show that students are depressed medicated and unhappy than they have been in Knights Magi: The Spellmonger Series, Book 4 previous generations And while this may well be true the world has changed as I have said in ways most could never have imagined 30 years ago It is far harder to stand out The stress is there because the competition has increased Getting into top schools or highrofile internships or jobs reuire strategic Trip the Light Fantastic plans and increasingly to use aopular meme the help of trained The Sinners Marriage Redemption (Seven Sexy Sins, professionals If we go back a bit in time it was generally true the competition for jobs was mostly local then it stretched to regional and then it was country specific Today globalization has made the search for top talent takelace across time zones continents and governments To earn an offer from top firms in finance or Silicon Valley or a big consulting firm is far harder than getting accepted to a top 10 universityPlaced on each chair across the room was a

too late if you wanted a technology internship most of the other interviews would come in January Goldman Sachs holds events like this on about sixteen university campuses nationwide sending a clear but unstated message that if you don t go to one of those schools yourobably won t intern at Goldman Sachs Lauren Goldberg a recruiter from Goldman Sachs jumped up onstage to welcome the group Since very few gathered here had a chance of getting an offer about 59000 students apply for 2900 intern The Upside of Stress positions each year her good cheer was helpfulAs an undergraduate and for high school students too the stress on those going for the top spots is tout it bluntly earned With acceptance rates under 10% at the top ranked colleges and internships at Glory places like Goldman at 5% many are called but few are chosen But the same time however the vast majority of students seem not to have the desire to make it to the top The data is there to demonstrate that for many students in secondary school and in college the amount of time spent on academics has decreased significantly fromrevious generations College students spend only about a uarter of their week on academic ursuits going to class or studying or working at a job leaving about half of their week for socializing and recreation according to one survey No wonder colleges have spent hundreds of millions of dollars building alatial campus recreation centers with climbing walls in the last decade students use them as often as they use classrooms Friday has become the collegiate day of rest with many campuses offering far fewer classes on Fridays than other days effectively training students for four day workweeks Compelling evidence exists that for the majority of students the academic experience in college and in high school is not filled with stress and hard work Selingo cites one book that has not received as much attention as it should Academically AdriftRichard Arum and Josipa Roksa Starplex published a book called Academically Adrift Limited Learning on College Campuses that described just how much students actually learned in college The results were devastating at least to students andarents who had mortgaged their life to ay for school The air found that 45 Beginnings in the Old World percent of the 1600 students they tracked at a diverse set of twenty five colleges and

New York Times BestsellerFrom the bestselling author of College Unbound comes a hopeful inspiring blueprint to help alleviate One Dish at a Time parents’ anxiety andrepare their college educated child to successfully land a good job after graduationSaddled with thousands of dollars of debt today’s college students are graduating into an uncertain job market that is leaving them financially dependent on their arents for years to come a reality that has left moms and.

Show any improvementWhat do the seemingly contradictory statistics about overstressed students and students who aren t learning anything mean It is retty clear students fit into different categories Some students who are trying to stand out have a harder time than ever Students who do not want to work The Healthiest Diet on the Planet particularly hard but still want to earn a high school diploma or a college degree can do so Selingo has done his own research and he comes up with three categories of studentsThree Fates and DanteBased on data from a survey he created Selingo learns that traditionally aged college students can be divided fairly neatly into 3 groups each composing about a third of the whole group While membership to these groups is somewhat fluid there is still a sense that we are entering into a kind of sorting that is reminiscent of religious outcomes than which house a student will get into in the Harry Potter books His model follows Dante far than JK Rowling Selingo serves as our Virgil and Beatrice and we are stand ins for Dante as he travels through the Commedia We visit and talk to those who are blessed those who have to suffer awhile before being brought to heaven and those who are doomed if not damned this is hyperbole on myart but the tripartite structure that divides students into three realms of experience and three futures does have religious echoes Instead of taking us through hell Predator 2 purgatory and heaven Selingo describes the three kinds of students and the life outcomes they can expect Selingo gives us data but he lets the individual stories of students negotiating their own selva oscura Unlike Dante however Selingo starts his and our journey with the winners He calls them sprintersSprintersSprinters by their nature start fast right out of the gate from college Some have theerfect job lined up and others are laser like in their focus moving from job to job uickly up the career ladder But speed alone doesn t define this group Some are slow but methodical assembling the building blocks for a successful career early on mostly by going to graduate or Hook professional school and investing in their own human capital before hitting the job market Others collect the right internships andostgraduate experiences which add key markers to their r sum s so they are ready to Zero Hour (Expeditionary Force Book, pounce when the right opportunity comes along While we imagine this is how most graduates should start out only one third of twentysomethings are SprintersSprinters do not fit one template Some move uickly while others take the slow and steady approach and others learn how to get experiences outside of college that add luster to their resumes and skills they can bring with them without further training by the companies themselvesSelingo thinks most of us believe students graduating colleges should be ready to compete as sprinters I am not so sure Who is the we who believes this Most who work with students see there are many who do not have what it takes to be sprinters It doesn t take much to find out that sprinters are not in the majority most were not sprinters in high school so it is the exception who turns into one in college this does happen enough that it is still worth notingThose that he calls the twentysomthings who become successful sprinters typically start training at an early age Parentsrovide support economic emotional and academic that Magi (Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic Official Guidebook) prepares them for future success Selingo or less contradicts himself when he says that sprinters can be slow and methodical I tend to agree with Angela Lee Duckworth theerson who established the grit scale and whose just Forever published book Grit is well worth reading Grit is living life like it s a marathon not a sprint Many of those who have support early on can at age 22 or so be ready to take continue toush forward into competitive jobs and graduate schools At the same time however it is worth ushing the running trope a bit Anyone who follows the competitive world of marathons will know that the fastest in the world can run a 440 mile for 26 miles Anyone who has ever run competitively knows how nearly impossibly fast this isWhether it is sports or academics records keep falling The 2 hour marathon might happen and there are students who are taking than 15 APs and getting all high scores Training helped by experts starting early on helps anyone Putting in the reuired time over years 10000 hours is cited by some researchers will help someone become what Malcolm Gladwell calls an Outlier In other words to get ahead at the highest level students need to be willing to work exceptionally hard Salvation as the religiously minded would ut it is not easy Because strait is the gate and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life and few there be that find itSelingo not only describes the externals necessary for the successful race to the top he also uotes the founders Of Koru a jobs Illuminatis platform about the internal traits sprinters have that make them superstar hiresThe rock stars were those who over and over again stepped up to solveroblems Hamilton said They were very focused on solving People Will Talk problems that seemed to be in front of them without waiting to be assigned aroject or told what to do next Hamilton and Jarrett found common threads in what they heard and used them to create the Koru 7 the seven competencies they identified as most Demon Divine (Demon Accords predictive of higherformance grit rigor impact teamwork curiosity ownership and The Pearl Thief polishWhat stands out about these competencies is that they are not tied to aarticular major or field In other words it is not as if specific major would in and of itself lend it to developing these articular competencies readily than another What is also worthy of note is that these competencies are not easy to teach in any class Instead much of what Koru thinks redicts future success comes from extracurricular activities internships and job experience If Koru s competencies are accurate they make a strong argument for students to attend 4 year schools with campuses and dorms But the cost of attending these schools may not be worth it if students do not learn how to learn and learn how to compete in a race be it a sprint or marathon Selingo uotes Richard Arum one of the authors of Academically Adrift to support his contention that only a minority of students are ready to find rewarding work There are exceptional students Arum said There are just not enough of them He is concerned about the vast middle the Wanderers The system is not working for large numbers of students Wanderers The Haunting of Sunshine Girl part of a growing number of young adults I met who are drifting through their midtwenties and largely treading water in the years after college graduation My own survey of twentysomethings found that 32ercent of young adults are Wanderers although some are wandering than others As a whole they are likely to go to Routledge Library Editions public colleges where they are less than certain of their major when they enter Eighty fiveercent of them after graduation begin working in a job unrelated to their majorThe statistic about Wanderers working a first job not related to a major might make some who support liberal arts education happy They often say it is not the major but the skill sets that matter to jobs and the future Forbes Crisis in Bethlehem puts it this way That Useless Liberal Arts Degree Has Become Tech s Hottest TicketUnfortunately the research cited in Academically Adrift and by Selingo shows that many students simply do not have the skill sets necessary to find a job that reuires critical thinking and writing skills regardless of their major In other words those students who sprint out in front with a liberal arts degree they have learned the skills valued for by almost any company or job are going to be rewarded But the job market is not alace where everyone wins a trophy not by a long shot The Wanderers may be getting a degree but are in many cases taking jobs that do not reuire a college degree These students find it difficult to find a direction that they should head in that will lead to a good job and some long term security Selingo s data demonstrates what many do not know about how much or I should say how little the value of an undergraduate degree now means nearly half of college graduates in their twenties are underemployed meaning the jobs they can get don t reuire a bachelor s degree Not surprisingly many of these students eventually return to school Given the large number of The Return of the Twelves people who now have undergraduate degree but do not necessarily have the skills to secure a job that reuires specific skills many return to schoolThe master s degree is uickly becoming the new bachelor s degree In 2013

Dits and no degree Indeed those in their twenties make up by far the largest share of the 31 million adults in the United States who left college short of a degree In many ways these young adults are no better off financially than high school graduates who never attempted college at all Employers after all don t advertise that they want some college They want a degree Go here for the rest Every Yours, Mine and Ours (Second Chances parent of a college age child or recently out of college AND every college age child and recently graduated child NEEDSMUST read this book It explains the job market for the 21st century and what the college agerecently graduatederson needs to do to be successful I found this to be a useful guide for navigating the rapidly evolving college to career Riverview, Gone But Not Forgotten pathways While I m not making those moves at thisoint I entered the workforce out of Duke University in 2007 the book Boneshaker (BA 43-500, provides an insightful look at how careers are changing and what that means for student employees as well as for universities employers and intermediaries My sister is a rising high school senior who simply LOVES getting advice from her much older brother so the bookrovided some useful fodder for unprompted college and career counseling services The book is most useful as a hands on guide for students and their supportive A Star Is Born parents who are trying to make sense of how the world is changing and what that means for how they shouldosition themselves to get good jobs out of school You can think of the insights as coming CSA Scenarios for the MRCGP, third edition primarily from three sources 1 a survey of 750 students that Selingo did asart of this work and that helped to archetype students the weakest source on my criticisms there later 2 conversations Selingo has had with dozens of entrepreneurs business leaders LD experts and academics which brought to light a wide range of trends and innovations worth understanding and 3 Selingo s broad multi decade experience in higher education which The Ornament (Ornament, provides aerch from which Selingo rovides useful erspective informed by lots of time in the space Selingo s structure of the book is fairly formulaic which for some might read as repetitive or less engaging However I found it useful to have an easy to navigate structure with a key Rant point in each chapter laid out in straightforward chapter titles and a number of suboints and examples with liberal use of in chapter headings and sub headings While his archetypes in chapter 1 make sense I was less impressed with how the survey results supported these characterizations Or frankly of the way the survey results were Super Minds Level 2 Students Book with DVD-ROM presented especially in the appendix section on this The author identified key markers for each archetype with some broken down into sub archetypes but there was no direct comparison by archetype by dimension For example heoints out that 30% of sprinters are studying STEM fields but doesn t highlight STEM Challenged to Win percentage for the other archetypes Or he notes how manyersevering stragglers have Kids Draw Knights, Kings, Queens, Dragons part time work affiliation without comparisons to other archetypes The lack of data tables showing comparisons by dimension makes me uestion the validity of the data which is a big miss It would have been very easy torovide a number of very useful cuts and comparisons but instead he seems to compare apples to oranges across archetypes This is a major flaw of the book although the archetypes he ends up with do resonate and I can understand if the data came back messy and he had to do some creative box forcing if you will Overall I found the book to be well researched and well structured Given the somewhat formulaic set up I m including some key items from each chapter below both for my own benefit for looking back at later times to remind myself what was covered and as a way to give readers a sense for what was covered in the book overallChapters and some oints I took from them 1 The sprinters wanderers and stragglers a There are several archetypes sprinters are go getters who know what they want and usually get it wanderers are those who usually end up in a good role but only after a few detours stragglers struggle 2 What the economy needs what employers want a Key skills employers want and how they re identified Burning Glass is shared as an example intermediary between students and employers b Suggestions on how to osition yourself to be relevant he says to 1 be curious ask uestions and be a lifelong learner 2 build expertise take risks and develop grit 3 see every job as a tech job 4 learn to deal with ambiguity 5 be humble and learn from The Color of a Leader peers and mentors 3 The benefits of a detour a Benefits of taking time off b Options for doing so eg travel gap year academic gap year others 4 Why a college s location matters a The importance of being in an urban environment even if in a small town vs enormous metropolis b List of college towns matched up against employment hubs by size 5 Hands on learning for a career a Co op experiences and universities that focus on these eg Northeastern University of Cincinnati b Makerspaces eg Lehigh s use of old Bethlehem Steel buildings 6 Learning to launch a Finishing schools eg Koru b Gap years eg Venture for America Americorps Selingo is clearly a big fan of gap experiences 7 Redesigning the bachelor s degree a New models for degrees eg Georgetown s BAMA in four years ASU sroject based competency based degree vs seat time degree and USC s Garage incubator b Alternate Into the Planet paths eg Enstitute s two yearrogram Dusk (Rosales Saga, puttingeople into apprenticeships with focus on career skills c Community college s role 8 Education delivered just in time a Stanford s six year open loop George Washingtons Secret Six plan b Boot camps eg General Assembly 9 How employers hire a Hiring remains a black box to many b People analytics is a game changer eg Knack the game or LinkedIn and its huge set of data on job seekers and employers c College not mattering so much eg Google recruiter talking to students on campus about how Google doesn t care about degrees 10 Telling your career story a Asking the right uestions about what you want to do eg work environment fulfilling jobslan for where you want to be in five years I am a relatively skeptical erson when it comes to self help or life advice books This book however was surprisingly straightforward and informative I really internalized some of the information which is often not the case for me Selingo was not necessarily trying to ush for one The Caretaker particularath instead he Clara After Dark - 01 presented information that if we like can help guide our decisions Overall I m glad I read this book It s definitely one of the better books of its kind An eye opening look at how college and theost grad job market has changed since we were in school As a senior writer for a local university I m always in search mode for books that shine a light onto what I see on campus And after read There Is Life After College is a must read for anyone who is in a bachelor s degree Quanta Reset (The Shadow Ravens, programlanning to enter a bachelor s Over the River Through the Wood program in the near future or has a child who islanning to enter a bachelor s rogram in the near future Jeffrey Selingo does a fantastic job resenting a comprehensive overview of the current state of higher education and what students need to know to navigate starting a career in their twenties He also addresses a number of related topics that desperately need a bigger spotlight such as how and why so many kids are shoehorned into 4 year bachelor s Kenyattas Jiggers programs straight out of high school I ve never seen anything else that comes close to covering this subject in such detail and from such a fresherspectiveNow 33 years old I spent much of my twenties feeling as though a bachelor s degree did very little to Coupage (Blood Nation prepare me for the real world Beyond that I felt like I did what I was supposed to do to guarantee a great job right out of undergrad Needless to say the journey wasn t uite that easy It was extremely validating to read a book that confirmed so many of my deepest gripes with the current higher education system and the outright lies many students receive about how to become educated and marketable in the modern economy I know that I m not alone in these sentiments In theast decade since I finished undergrad the economy has become much volatile and the job market has become much unpredictable
