How to Use College to the Fullest to Discover Your Strengths and Find a Job You Love Before You Graduate

by Kat Clowes, M.B.A.

College today is not preparing students for the modern job market—at a time when young people can expect to change careers five times or more, students are graduating with insufficient and obsolete job skills. The old rules for succeeding in college just don’t work anymore.

Put College to Work is a new kind of college guide, written by a Millennial for Millennials and designed for today’s world of uncertain employment, rapid career changes, and high student loan debt. The author knows first-hand what works and what doesn’t in today’s economy, both from her own experience as a student and her career as a college planning consultant. At a time when traditional college planning is failing to prepare students for working world, Put College to Work is a supremely practical guide to start building your career plan, your business contacts, and your job prospects.

Put College to Work shows how to identify your strengths, find the right career field and major to pursue, leverage your skills, and create your own opportunities. You’ll learn how to network to employers through your university’s career center, alumni association, and major donors, plus the industry and research connections of your professors.

Put College to Work presents a step-by-step plan to use the resources available to you in college (the resources you’re already paying for!) to enhance your education with practical experience, make connections with employers, market yourself as a dynamic and creative employee—and land a job before you graduate.

Put College to Work is the new rule book to how college really works today that will empower you to take action now to build your education, your career plan, your business contacts, and your job prospects.


About the Author: Kat Clowes figured out college the hard way. Having been a college student without a clue, Clowes spent ten years after graduation learning how she could have used her college resources to launch her career. After earning an M.B.A. and building a successful executive career, Clowes is now an independent educational consultant helping students use their time in college to gain meaningful employment after graduation.
