This review is from: How to Get a Graduate Job in a Recession (Paperback)
For a while here at mygraduatecareer.com HQ, we've been following Tanya De Grunwald, founder of the Graduatefog website and feisty campaigner for paid internships. Like us, she was frustrated by the lack of decent careers advice for new graduates, made worse by a poor jobs market in a long, tough recession. Like us, she decided to do something about it rather than wait for someone else to do it for her. It's an important quality for survival in the current jobs market. For a generation of young people who have been made passive by an 'all shall win prizes' school culture and fed a fake dream that a a fistful of top exam grades would magically open the door to a land of milk and honey, the cold hard reality of how to get a job, any job, has come hard. Enter no-nonsense, 'tell it like it is' Tanya. She's done her homework, consulted people like recruiters and employers who actually know what they're talking about as well as adding her own experiences, covered all the bases and she's funny and passionate about your future. For the price of a couple of Happy Hour cocktails, you too could be seizing life by the throat and getting the start in life you'd always hoped for - buy yourself a copy.
