Press Release: Life after College: New book helps students kick-start careers

“This is not a self help book… This is a book to help you create your best options, now and into the future…”

31 August 2015

College to Career, The Student Guide to Career and Life Navigation, a new book by accomplished human resources professional and author, Mark A. Griffin, will be released on Amazon.com on August 31, 2015.

This year, more than 1.6 million students will graduate with a Bachelor’s Degree, after dedicating themselves to years of study and investing tens of thousands of dollars into their education.

The identified trend is that these inspired students are keen to kick-start their careers, leaping blindly into the workplace and asking questions later. Unfortunately, the majority find themselves in unrelated to their college major, feeling unfulfilled and demotivated. It’s a downward spiral from this point.

The book will help readers to target the career ideally suited to their personality, set up practical, actionable steps through each stage of college and translate their education into a meaningful career.

The Harvest Is Plentiful but the Workers Are Few

Christian Leadership Alliance Guest Post 

Matthew 9:37–38

Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.   Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.

This was so very true when it was written and still so very true today. The workers available to bring the good word to the world of Christ’s saving blood are few. This piece of Scripture is the foundation of what it is that we do here at In HIS Name HR.
