There is Life After College Presentation by Jeff Selingo
Immaculata University is pleased to announce that bestselling author Jeffrey J. Selingo will be discussing his latest book, There is Life After College: What Parents and Students Should Know about Navigating School to Prepare for the Jobs of Tomorrow, on Thursday, September 29, from 3 – 4:00 p.m. in the Great Hall. Selingo will also be signing books. The event is free and open to the public.
Discussions stemming from There is Life After College will offer students, parents and recent graduates practical advice and insight they need to help jumpstart careers after college. Selingo will also address why recent graduates find the transition to post-college life so difficult and how graduates can market themselves to employers reluctant to provide on-the-job training. Participants will also gain insight into how young adults can better navigate the route from high school through college and into a perilous economy where the world of work and jobs are changing.
Writing about higher education for two decades, Selingo has established himself as an education expert. As author of three books, he is also a regular contributor to The Washington Post and editor-at-large for the Chronicle of Higher Education. Selingo’s work has been honored with awards from the Education Writers Association, Society of Professional Journalists, and the Associated Press.
“Jeff’s presentation will include advice on how best to navigate the route from high school through college and into the world of work,” stated Kathleen McCauley, director of Immaculata’s Career and Professional Development Office. “This broad-reaching subject matter could be beneficial to all high school students and college-aged students in addition to their parents.”
The Career and Professional Development Office of Immaculata University is sponsoring the event. For more information or to RSVP, please visit www.immaculata.edu/life-after-college.
