Description

You are not alone my worried parent. According to Beth Hendler-Grunt, President of Next Great Step, “Forty-three percent of recent college graduates are underemployed in their first job out of college.” “Of those, two-thirds are still underemployed after five years, and just over half remain so after 10 years,” she adds.
 
BUT THERE IS HOPE
 
To hear Beth tell it, “Navigating the post-college job world is all about developing and implementing the right strategies.” Next Great Step is her firm focused on guiding college students and recent grads to help them achieve career success.
 
“Turns out,” Beth assures us, “there is hope to get your kid off the ‘family payroll’.”
 
STAND OUT AND LAND THAT JOB
 
Hendler-Grunt is a sought-after career coach and former consultant to Fortune 500 companies. She is also a respected expert and frequently speaks about landing that first job. 
 
Over the course of her career Beth has discovered that working with college students and recent graduates is a bit like working with mega-company CEOs. Oh, really? Beth leverages techniques honed on her executive clients to guide your college grad to land that great job. You’ll want to listen in as she shares some of the methods she developed from her work in the corporate world. 
 
NETWORK YOUR WAY TO CAREER SUCCESS
 
Sometimes your college student or recent grad is stymied. How important is “who you know” when looking for a job? Do you need to know someone in your field of interest? And oh my, what if you don’t know anyone? Beth has the answers to these and other questions. And you’ll hear her share them in this interview.
 
SECRETS TO GETTING HIRED
 
Are there really secrets to getting hired? Secrets? Maybe.  But also, some good, old-fashioned practical advice. Listen as Beth shares some of each. How do you look at getting hired from the employer’s point of view? What are companies really looking for? She describes what employers expect and what a parent can and cannot do to help their college student or recent graduate stand out from the crowd.
