You'll learn a lot of things in college, but there's one thing the textbooks won't teach you: how to acquire marketable job skills before you graduate.Award-winning college professor and student adviser Bill Coplin has been developing skill-based liberal arts curricula for more than 30 years, and has helped thousands of students get great jobs. Here, he lays down the essential skills you need to survive and succeed in today's job market, based on his extensive interviews with employers, recruiters, human resource specialists, and employed college grads. Going beyond test scores and GPAs, Coplin teaches you how to develop real-world know-how in ten crucial skill groups:

  • Work Ethic
  • Physical Performance
  • Speaking
  • Writing
  • Teamwork
  • Influencing People
  • Research
  • Number Crunching
  • Critical Thinking
  • Problem Solving Mastering these 10 THINGS, you'll earn not only your degree but also the skills you need to impress employers and land your dream job right after college. Reviews“Coplin's theories are brilliant and dead on. I can't remember the last time someone asked me my GPA or major, but I use parts of these ten skill groups every day in my job at Disney.” —Jim Gallagher, Senior Vice-President of Creative Advertising, The Walt Disney Company“Clear, concise, and complete. The ultimate playbook for college students.” —Pierre Mornell, author, HIRING SMARTClick for an excerpt featured on Newsweek's website.
