Chicken Noodle Soup for the 20-Something’s Soul

November 11, 2008

 

Congratulations! You’ve spent your hard earned money on the chance for a quality education and your precious time on studying into the wee hours of the morning. At times it was difficult and you weren’t sure if you had it in you, but you stuck with it. It’s taken blood, sweat, and tears, but you’ll forever have the degree to prove it. You are a college graduate.

 

Now what? 

 

Welcome to the real world. That’s what Nicholas Aretakis, author of the gold medal winner in the Career category, would say. But fear not, for he also comes bearing good news.  In his book, No More Ramen: The 20-Something’s Real World Survival Guide, he offers advice on how to face head on all those challenges recent graduates face after leaving college. By conducting more than 200 interviews with graduates across the nation, Aretakis is able to effectively identify and address the questions facing those countless faces ready to make the transition from university life to a professional career.  Besides commenting on basic aspects such as finding a job and financial aspects, this road map to the real world can help today’s youth learn to balance a career with their personal lives to find happiness and success. 

 

Whether you like it or not, the choices you make today will set you up for your future…whatever path you take, you’ll learn things, you’ll grow, and you’ll become a different person.”
