Stories, thoughts, and advice from the famous and not-so famous about senior year, the "first year out" and everything in between

The College Graduate’s Handbook: Tales From The Famous and Not- So-Famous About Senior Year, The First Job, and Figuring It All Out Once You Graduate contains topics, themes, and questions that are vital and relevant to those who are graduating or have graduate college. Every page will provide readers with stories, information, and direct quotes from a diverse range of individuals with different backgrounds. As a result of the true, first-hand accounts, the readers will undoubtedly benefit from the emotions, feelings, and attitude from someone who has been in their shoes before them. Any dance major looking to become a doctor, or just someone wondering how to make a living while pursuing a passion, can open the book and read about someone, somewhere, who went through something similar. 

Additionally, famous and successful professionals such as Academy-Award and Tony-Award Winners, acclaimed authors, businessmen, doctors, Olympic Gold-Medalists, Musicians, Government Officials, and many more reflect on where they started before they found the right direction.

Even if you aren't a college graduate you can benefit from this book. For those looking to start anew or for suggestions and insight on certain industries and careers, The College Graduate’s Handbook provides a wide range of information, story-telling, and advice.  

FAQ

  • I will be hiring two different types of editors. The first is a developmental editor and the second is a copyeditor. In addition, I will be hiring an artist to do the art for the cover and various pages in the book and a web designer that will create an interactive platform for everyone
