- What is "life launch" and how is it different from getting a job?
- Why do employers hire people like you?
- Which skills do employers value most? (They're not what you think )
- How do non-tech people get hired and thrive in tech companies?
- How do you set yourself up to get promoted?
- How do you prove you have skills that don't show up on your transcripts?
- How do you get experience if you can't get a job, or have the "wrong" major?
- How can you get famous and influential people to help you?
- How do you hit restart if you get stuck in a dead-end job out of college?
- What should you do if you're a graduate and living in your parents' basement?
- What should you do if you're a junior to make sure you don't end up in that basement?
Whether you're twenty and still in college or twenty-nine and still wondering how to start your life, HOW TO GET ANY JOB offers the most creative and innovative thinking on life launch to date. It is used by college career centers nationwide.
