Give the Gift of a Brand – and a Great Job – to a Soon-to-Be College Grad!

Is there a college grad in your life? If so, the greatest gift you can give him or her for graduation is the best chance at landing a job they’ll love, right out of school.

Recent headlines say it all: “College Grads Struggle to Find Jobs,” “College Grads Urged to Be Aggressive In Seeking Jobs,” “College Grads Worry About Finding Jobs,” and on and on. But college grads shouldn’t let a lack of work experience get in the way of landing a position they’ll love, no matter what the economy.

That’s why I wrote How YOU™ Are Like Shampoo for College Graduates. It’s the only Personal Branding System designed specifically to help college students build a powerful brand for themselves.

Just launched last year, it’s filled with hundreds of eye-opening tips I gleaned from interviewing more than 50 top companies and schools about what it takes for college grads to stand out in a crowd of older, more experienced candidates. HR experts from companies such as Google, Disney, IBM, AT&T, Procter & Gamble, Motorola, Hilton, Nestle, and Goldman Sachs “spilled the beans” with me, and I share it all in this book.

People tell me it makes a great gift for a graduating senior! And, if you buy the paperback or e-book from my website, you will automatically receive a Free Accompanying Manual of Exercises – 60 pages of step-by-step personal branding exercises – worth an extra $12.95. The manual is full of exercises that I developed and customized so that your grad will feel like I’m right there, running alongside, coaching them through the system.
