Career Advice for Graduates: 62 Essential Elements to Excel Early by Cori Arnold is chock full of advice for graduates about how to turn their college degree into a successful career. The suggestions and guidance offered are simple, straightforward, and full of common sense ideas, but it's also the sort of guidance that can be easily overlooked by an overwhelmed college student trying to keep his or her feet on the ground. It starts off strong with an introduction to RACI, which is relationships, attitude, communication, and initiative, and it explains why the Millennial generation is the least employed generation right now and how Millennials can fix it.

The hardest part to get past is that it feels a little like a textbook. For students looking to escape from their college education, this can be a downside, but it also makes it easy for them to fall into it if they are truly interested in absorbing and understanding the messages within. It contains a lot of examples and explanations for different passages to help people understand exactly why they should do things a certain way.

It is also chock full of useful suggestions and fantastic descriptions of how to create positive relationships and interact with people in a better way. I particularly enjoyed the sections about communication, because I think everyone can benefit from useful information about how to communicate more effectively. Career Advice for Graduates: 62 Essential Elements to Excel Early by Cori Arnold is full of suggestions about how graduates can excel in their careers, and for the right audience it can be an incredibly useful and valuable text.
