Goodbye College - Hello Life


From body piercings to resumes to wardrobe, Goodbye College, Hello Life! author Lisa Brock goes where others fear to tread, tackling subjects that are rarely discussed in the standard advice book. As mentor and boss to hundreds of young men and women in her 30-year career, she has written a no-nonsense, no-holds-barred book for this generation of young people. Goodbye College, Hello Life! is not your standard I did it, and so can you advice book. It won't give you step-by-step instructions on how to write a resume or do a standard job search - there are dozens of authors who do a fine job with that. This book is different. Why is it that some job seekers get turned down for positions they are qualified for? Why do others fail to make it through the first six weeks, when companies assess how well probationary hires fit within the organization? And how can someone who partied through college without a goal get back on track and end up in their dream job? In Goodbye College, Hello Life! Lisa Brock sits on the other side of the hiring desk, across from the interviewee, and explains what the manager, HR professional, or executive is really thinking when he or she meets a job seeker for the first time. Whether it's the basics of grooming or communication or interoffice relationships, her real-life anecdotes and examples of screw-ups and move-ups provide some of the most-important life lessons you'll ever get. Committed to the personal and professional development of young people, Lisa Brock takes what she has learned as a marketing and public relations executive, crisis intervention mediator, coach, mom, and university educator and uses it to help today's generation of young adults enter the real-life, no-nonsense world of work, find their dream job, and keep it.
