“The Economy Has Been Bad Before. You’ll Get Through It.”
Grads are realistic, so don’t offer them empty platitudes or assure them that things will get better in a few years. They’re concerned about what they can do right now to jump-start their careers. I suggest they spend time making their profiles on LinkedIn and Facebook appear as professional as possible. That’s where employers are looking for new hires these days.
