Everything You Wanted to Know...

Are you a college grad wary of your entry into the so-called "real world" or are you the parent of a college graduate worried about the uncertain future your child is embarking on? If the answer is yes, you are in for a treat. There is a free downloadable e-book for budget-conscious graduates offering some help at just the right time. Packed with indispensable tips, candid advice, and humorous dispatches from early adulthood, The Gradspot.com Guide to Life After College has everything you need to know but didn't learn in college!

Recent graduates face the loss of the safety net of their parents and school. For the first time in their lives, they are forced to independently contend with the challenges of finding an apartment, getting a job, navigating healthcare, understanding 401(k)s, and so much more. Even if your own parents are super-supportive, it can still be tough!

Compiled from the research and writings of over forty contributors, the guide is an invaluable resource not only for recent college graduates, but also for parents looking for ways to help their children become independent. Just a few of the issues the guide tackles are: the challenges of signing a lease and buying a used car.
