It is clear that the path from college to work has changed dramatically in recent years-current statistics show that half of young college graduates are either jobless or underemployed in positions that don't fully use their skills and knowledge. But landing a good job is not impossible! Authors Tori Randolph Terhune, a gainfully-employed young college graduate herself, and Betsy A. Hays, a college professor, show readers what they can do in college to successfully pave the way for future employment. The authors provide eleven easy-to-follow strategies for students to effectively use time on campus to start building a career.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Every college undergraduate needs this book! There is a widespread notion among college students that if you just take the right classes, in the right order, somehow at the end of your college experience you will magically land a job. Not true! Preparing for a career requires an extensive, thoughtful plan. Tori Randolph Terhune and Betsy Hays have laid out a superb guide that any student can use to chart a course to personal and professional success. I will recommend this book to all my students with just six words: Get it, study it, live it. -- Doug Swanson, California State University, Fullerton
When you are in college there are so many opportunities-in and outside the classroom-to set yourself up for success. This book is the blueprint! -- Timothy M. Stearns, Coleman Foundation Chair in Entrepreneurship, Executive Director, Lyles Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship
Coauthored by a former student and her professor, this book provides useful career strategies and advice to current college students. Terhune and Hays have created a very readable work providing straightforward advice; useful anecdotes modeling successful behaviors; helpful tips throughout each section; and a cheat sheet to summarize key points. They discuss the importance of students' cultivating behaviors such as strong communication skills, politeness, honesty, time management, prioritization, integrity, professionalism, goal setting, clarity, and organizational skills. Separate chapters are devoted to networking and using social media. Stories of individuals throughout the chapters illustrate the behaviors and skills discussed. From succeeding in the classroom and obtaining valuable internships to eventually landing a job and developing a career, Terhune and Hays provide excellent, easily digestible advice for the many stages a college undergraduate will go through. Summing Up: Recommended. All levels of undergraduate students as well as general readers. * CHOICE *
Land Your Dream Career is the MUST have book for every college student who wishes to launch and establish a strong personal brand and career path. Tori Randolph Terhune and Betsy A. Hays have hit the nail on the head and provide a easy to read, well-guided book that will propel the next generation of future graduates forward in an organized, inspired manner. -- Donna Wertalik, Career & Faculty Advisor, Pamplin College of Business, Marketing Department, Virginia Tech
