This book is about the proactive things that students can do to get themselves a job.
This book is a practical discussion of actionable steps (six of them!) that students can take to land a job regardless of the market.
Whether the estimate is 25% unemployment or single-digit unemployment, that number doesn’t apply to any one student. For any individual, the unemployment rate is 0% or 100%. One either has a job or doesn't. When any one person is looking for a job and there is 10% unemployment, that person just wants to be one of the nine people that has a job.

Students might think even that one job is beyond their grasp. They think they don’t have the right degree. Their school is in a different location than where they’d like to work. Not enough jobs are listed or employers are visiting the campus. This type of thinking cedes control of a student's search to outside forces. It is not up to professors, schools, career services support, or recruiters to get students a job.About the Authors
