Review: Higher Education: On LIfe, Landing a Job, and Everything They Didn't Teach You in College by Kenneth Jedding

Today’s college grads face a new set of challenges brought on by a sluggish job market, changing technology, and staggering amounts of debt. The rules have changed since their parents were in school, leaving young adults at a loss for advice that addresses their immediate concerns as well as the big-picture questions with which each generation of young adults must contend.

Life coach Ken Jedding has spent the past decade talking one-on-one with college students and graduates across the country in his workshops and lectures. In Higher Education, he provides a fresh, modern guidebook to postcollegiate life that addresses the issues and concerns he hears voiced most often. From the lofty What is my purpose in life? to the practical How can I land my dream job? to the increasingly common (if somewhat terrifying) How did I wind up back in my parents’ house?, Jedding’s valuable insight, wisdom, and humor provide a much-needed roadmap for the journey that is only just beginning.

Received from the publicist for review.

This one gets four stars. The author's straightforward style makes you feel that he genuinely cares about his readers and wants them to be their best. That sincerity lends a quality rarely found in in career advice books. This is truly a valuable resource for recent grads in that it answers the very real questions they have about jobs,
careers, etc. This is highly recommended and would make an excellent gift for the college grad in your life.

★★★★ = Really Liked It
