During the summer I had the chance to chat with some recent college graduates who still can’t find work. It’s frustrating to have a degree from a two year or four year college, to have spent tens of thousands of dollars (or over six figures) getting a degree and then to have no job.
I’m forming a networking group of recent college graduates. This group will meet, exchange ideas about employment opportunities and strategies and reach out to some possible employers and people who could help them land a job. If your son or daughter recently graduated college and if they are still out of work, please encourage them to contact me. My e mail is firstname.lastname@example.org.
This initiative is a follow up to an effort I started over six years ago when I formed a job club. Over 300 people have found work as a result of this effort. I hope we will be able to help recent college graduates find meaningful job opportunities and will also invite recent graduates who have some time to volunteer their time –helping to organize this effort.
Don’t get discouraged!
