Excellent Beach Reading and a Great Gift for Recent Graduates!

By In Blog On June 15, 2017

I know, it’s summer and all anyone wants to do is go to the beach, hang out, maybe read a book and just have a summer! If you’ve recently graduated, then (I hate to be the one to tell you), this is probably your last summer too – so enjoy! And what better way to relax and unwind than with a juicy summer thriller, like “Modern Job Search” of course. Right? Because who doesn’t want to read about career development while lounging on the beach with a cocktail. Okay, I’ll admit, reading about how to find a job may not be most relaxing thing you can do while all your friends are playing volleyball and getting sand in uncomfortable places but you’ll be making an investment in “you.” See, totally worth it? And it’s not even that heavy, especially the Kindle version.

Finding the right job, or at least a good enough job to get you started isn’t always easy. Every summer millions of graduates flood the markets looking for jobs and for many, like it was for me, just getting started is intimidating. If you’re a recent graduate looking for a job you’re probably hearing about it from everyone already and may even be worried. I don’t want to add to that. It’s true, “Modern Job Search” is filled with stuff that will help you get a job but – convenient fact – carrying a copy around will also keep people off your back. Think about it. Whether you read it or not, $12.99 (paperback) is money well spent if it buys some peace and quiet.

PS:  Parents and Grandparents – “Modern Job Search” makes a great summer gift for the graduate who has everything but a job!

Kurt Schmidt is the author of “Modern Job Search” and the President and Owner of Capto Systems, an executive search firm focused on supply chain and strategic sourcing jobs in manufacturing and energy. He’s also an aspiring photographer and traveler.  If you’re really looking for a job, you need his book!
