Are you still looking for that perfect job six months after graduating from college? Are you also still firing off hundreds of resumes from your parents’ house with little or no results? Then you need the real-world advice of executive recruiter John Henry Weiss. In Welcome to the Real World, Weiss provides much-needed guidance to recent college graduates seeking their first jobs in the real world of work.

Weiss explains that companies do not hire resumes. They hire candidates who make the effort to build personal relationships. He discusses the importance of leaving the house to find employers at venues such as job fairs, trade shows, and conferences, and even Starbucks. Weiss points out that work is a means to getting out on your own, and he offers encouraging advice and tips for how to do just that, such as:

Establishing a home office for job hunting
Using social media effectively to find employers and increase your chances of getting hired
Dressing appropriately for job interviews
Starting your own business
Targeting companies that value the skill sets of returning military personnel
Evaluating and negotiating job offers
And much more!

Welcome to the Real World is not only the ultimate career guide for finding your first job, but also for understanding the real world of work, and for beginning the rest of your life.
