How to College, and Beyond

This website contains a treasure-trove of links to other websites with a range of subject areas—including preparing for your future life in the workforce. There are 101 sites, with far more than the “101 Tips” promised in the title:
  • Financial Aid
  • Student Loans
  • Personal Finance
  • Investing
  • Dorm Life
  • College and Careers
  • Love Life
  • Dealing with Parents
  • Prepping for the Future

Of special interest for those thinking about the job market is the section “College and Careers,” which contains these topics:
  • Building a Skill Set That Employers Want
  • Don’t Do These Three Things When Signing Up For College
  • The Ups and Downs of Seasonal Jobs 
  • 8 Simple Steps to Networking Like a Boss
  • How to Make the Most of Your Internship 
  • The Ultimate College Internship 
  • A Few Thoughts on Unpaid Internships 
  • 14 Insanely Easy Ways to Look Busy At Work 
  • How and Why to Get an On-Campus Job 
  • Online Jobs For College Students are a Smart Move 
  • Figuring Out Your Major 
  • A College Grad’s Guide to the Job Search 
  • Your College Major Doesn’t Matter 

And if math is not your strong suit (it isn’t for many English majors—including me), you’ll find some helpful free resources on money management on the main website.

Thanks and a tip o’ the Twitter hat to @CollegeInvestin
