Unfortunately, many colleges really don't prepare their graduates with the real life tools that they need to get a job.  Do they even realize that resumes are on life-support?  If you don't have a strong LinkedIn profile and an active presence on the site, by the time you are a junior, you're behind the curve.  Do you even have a personal brand?  Are you actively promoting it?  Do you have a business card?  Yes, before you get that job, not after.  Do you know how to effectively build a network that will grow as you and your career grow?  So many things to consider.  

Every college student, needs a career coach to help them understand and successfully navigate their career track.  At we can help.  We're poised to provide support for those in transition.  Yes, the transition from student to working professional.  You've already spent a fortune on books and tuition.  Have you saved a bit for the most important tool?    We'll help you stand out in a sea of mortar boards!
