A great gift for near or recent college grads is a book that can help them get good jobs. (NAPS)
(NAPSI)—To give college students something that’ll help them
for years, consider these job search tools and resources.
1. Give books on how to
successfully navigate the job search process. One of the more popular
books is “The Secret to Getting a Job After College: Marketing Tactics
to Turn Degrees into Dollars.” The newest edition addresses obstacles
that college students have to overcome to make it through the job search
The author, Dr. Larry Chiagouris, is a professor
at Pace University. He wrote the book after several years working in
corporate America, where he realized most students don’t have a clue
how to find the best opportunities and then sell themselves to employers.
With this gift, you can provide much-needed guidance. The book provides
answers to the tough questions employers tend to ask college students during
an interview. It also has tips on preparing cover letters,
résumés, and an online presence that can capture the attention
of employers. A quick read (something students prefer), it’s available
from Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
2. Give a gift certificate to a
printer or to Vistaprint.com,
where they can purchase business cards. These can help students appear more
professional than their peers who don’t have them.
3. Provide gift certificates to
clothing stores to help with interview prep. Many students don’t
understand the importance of a professional appearance when going on an
interview. In his book, Dr. Chiagouris provides
suggestions as to what to wear—and what not to wear. His bottom line
suggestion: Avoid appearing too casual when going on an interview.
Overdressing rarely hurts.
