College can be some of the best years of your life, but what happens after graduation? With the tough economy, increased costs of living and outsourcing of jobs, what’s a recent graduate to do?
We partnered with prominent blogger and author of Life After College, Jenny Blake, to develop a post-college decision making roadmap. Whether you live at home, are job hunting or not sure what to do with your life, it may be a good idea to start brainstorming and planning your future.
If you haven’t met Jenny yet, she has quite a story to tell. She attended UCLA and left halfway through her junior year to join a tech startup. After experiencing the “real world,” she returned to college and graduated in three years with a degree in political science and communications with the following distinctions: Phi Beta Kappa, Magna Cum Laude, and College Honors.
During her tenure at Google, Jenny specialized in training, coaching, and career development. More recently, she took a leap of faith and moved to New York to pursue her coaching and speaking career full-time.
Jenny has been featured on Forbes, CNN, US News & World Report, and was recognized by Suze Orman as a leader among Gen Y.
More than anything, Jenny is proof that your destiny is in your hands.
