Introducing The Happy Grad Project

You’ve always been told college is the best time of your life, and everything changes once you’ve graduated and set foot into the “real world.” The “real world” has always had this scary, negative connotation to it. But why? - 1.6 million undergraduates expected to graduate in 2014 - 44% of recent grads are underemployed - 2013 grads average $35,200 in college-related debt - 36% of young adults ages 18-31 live with their parents

Here's what some students are saying about finding a job after college.

The Happy Grad Project will unite recent grads, encourage them to get excited for their next step, and prepare them for their life and career.

FREE E-Book!

Our e-book, "The Recent Grad's Guide To Getting A Job," is full of great tips, tricks, and practical advice for recent grads on the job hunt.

All work and no play can create a tense and unwelcoming environment. Studies have shown that employers that offer additional perks have employees that are happier and more loyal to their place of employment. If you are looking for an employer that acknowledges how important it is to give its employees a place to de-stress and bond with their co-workers, check out these companies!

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the awkward situation one of our viewers, Diane submitted. She has recently worked with a co-worker on a group project. When it came time to present the project at a meeting, Diane let her co-worker present. While it went great, the co-worker proceed to take credit for nearly all of Diane's work. Frustrating to say the least!

Starting a family is one of the biggest milestones in a person's life. It's in those first few months when a parent can really bond with their newborn and make lifelong memories. However, for some new dads, it can be difficult to juggle being a new parent while remaining dedicated to their career.

Fortunately, some companies have generous paternity leave policies that give new dads the ability to take time off of work to stay home with their child.
