It has been our experience that college does not adequately prepare you for everything life has to offer, but that does not mean that the resources are not out there. In addition to what we offered in our Life After College issue, we wanted to share a few other resources that can certainly aid you on your post collegiate journey (click on the bold text to be taken directly to the sites):

In addition to the book, Life After College: What Your Parents and Professors Never Taught You, Twentity.com offers: Graduate Into the Real World Bootcamp-in person presentations-a message board to connect with other twenty-somethings-AND a wealth of valuable resources

This book put so many things into perspective for me and motivated me to reach for exactly what I wanted in every aspect of my life. It's an easy read and definitely worth a few revisits. Highly recommended.
