For 20 million young people in the U.S., and 200 million globally, attending or graduating from college during the COVID-19 crisis has plunged them into uncertainty and significantly altered their approach to entering the workplace. But this pandemic merely accelerated career and hiring trends that have been building for a long time. Changes that were once slowly spreading have been rapidly implemented across all industries—and the old rules no longer apply. Young adults must learn how to thrive in the “new normal” of work, which will include a hybrid of remote and in-person experiences, significantly more virtual communication, increased automation, constant disruption, and more concern about employee health and well-being. This leads us to question: what’s next? Lindsey Pollak, who has spent the past 20 years advising young professionals and the organizations that employ them, hopes to alleviate concerns and support the next generation of global leaders with this forward-looking career guide. Combining feedback from both experts and students, this encouraging and strategic book will advise on topics such as: making decisions about your major and extracurricular activities; building your personal brand; using virtual communication to remotely interview, network, and work; and maintaining self-care and mental health. By using these tactics, college students and professionals will be well-equipped to handle any workplace obstacles that come their way, viewing them as challenges to overcome rather than impossible roadblocks. There is no perfect upward path to a dream career, but by launching into the workforce prepared with the necessary skills to succeed, young people will be off to a great start. Read Less
