LITTLETON, Colo., May 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the Strada Institute for the Future of Work, last year 40 percent of college graduates found themselves underemployed, working in a job that did not require a degree. Others struggled to find any job at all. College advisors and coauthors Lindy and Tom L. Schneider want to change that by showing college students what they must do while in college to attract great job offers after graduation.
In their new book, College Secrets of Highly Successful People: Keys to Launching a Great Life, the Schneider's tell the little-known stories of what millionaires and celebrities did while in college to launch their careers and how anyone can follow in their footsteps. "The biggest difference between most college students and the ones who skyrocket to success is how they found and built relationships in college. Most people think success is tied to who you know, but it's really about who you get to know, and college provides the fertile ground for that to happen," says Tom.
In an interview Tom and Lindy can share:
- How Steven Spielberg launched his illustrious career by applying for an internship offered through his college
- What Fortune 500 companies look for in a job candidate (hint: it's not straight A's)
- What students must take advantage of while in college that will make them irresistible to employers after college
- The inside information on how multimillion-dollar businesses were created on campus by teams of students
