Soundview Executive Book Summaries


Are College Graduates Prepared for the Job Market?

College graduations are coming up quickly, and as graduates prepare for final exams and exiting college life, they are also scurrying to find work.

I recently ran across a new website targeting recent graduates at Gradspring.com. This site focuses on entry-level jobs only, with a college degree requirement but 2 years or less work experience. They match graduates’ skills with the right job at no charge.

Of course there are many other sites for job-seekers like Careerbuilder.com, Monster.com, Indeed.com, Experience.com, CareerRookie.com and CollegeGrad.com. Each has its strengths and weaknesses for the new graduate, but GradSpring.com promises to provide only jobs that have a salary commensurate with the industry standard, jobs that are truly entry-level, and jobs that have a physical workspace (no work-at-home listings).

As you or your graduate prepare for this big step out into the workforce, Soundview can also provide some resources for the new or potential employee.

This month we’re offering a special Graduation Subscription offer for Soundview Executive Book Summaries at 15% off our standard rates. In addition, gift givers can send a customized gift email to each recipient. Our business book summaries and author webinars are the perfect starter kit for anyone moving out into corporate life.

Next Thursday we’re also hosting a webinar with Eric Chester, author of Reviving Work Ethic. This will provide an eye-opening view into what employees expect from the Generation Y worker. You can register for $59, and registration is free for all Soundview subscribers.

Help the graduate in your life get off to a strong start with these resources.
