Recession Proof Graduate
In 2009, I wrote an ebook called Recession-Proof Graduate. I wrote it because I’d received more than a hundred emails from college students and graduates, asking for advice on how to get a job they wouldn’t hate.
Much like them, I had struggled to find meaningful work — or any work — after getting out of school. I was greeted by the worst economy in 80 years, and spent my days spamming my resume to hundreds of companies I didn’t want to work for… and never hearing back. It was exhausting. But once I changed my strategy (which I lay out in the ebook below), everything changed. I landed a handful of dream gigs, got to work with amazing people, and found myself turning down multiple job offers. But best of all, I was getting paid to work on projects that made me come alive. It was a far cry from the days of begging for soul-crushing work.
People kept asking how I did it, so I wrote it all down. What started off as a few paragraphs turned into a 30-page guide on how you can use free work to change your life for the better. This ebook — which you can download by clicking here – was the result:
And this was the original Slideshare:
