Graduation is a time of tough questions whose answers we don't-and
sometimes can't-know the day we receive our diploma. Determined to
power through the uncertainty of post-graduation, bestselling
author Katherine Schwarzenegger embarked on a yearlong quest to
gather the best guidance possible from more than thirty highly
successful people working in fields like business, media, fashion,
technology, sports, and philanthropy.
Along the way, Katherine uncovered the essential and often
surprising advice they have for graduates, including answers to
• How do I find my first job in a tough economy?
• How do I decide between a career that pays well and one that I'm
• How do I balance work with friends, relationships, and
• Should I take a "gap year" before starting my first
• What should I do about my student loan debt?
Drawing on the stories and real-life experiences of contributors
such as Anderson Cooper, Eva Longoria, Blake Mycoskie of TOMS
shoes, Lauren Bush Lauren, Andy Cohen, Meghan McCain, Gayle King,
and more, Katherine has written the must-have guide for recent and
soon-to-be graduates as they prepare to seek success and
fulfillment in their work, relationships, and lives.
