I am not sure that the title quite suits this talk, but I really enjoyed hearing this story. Recently I’ve had a number of students from the college I attended reach out to me with tips and suggestions on finding the right job post-grad. It’s so hard; there is so much rejection and self-doubt. Keating does a great job laying out his journey and providing some practical tips on how to get to the career you want. I definitely agree with him on the importance of networking–not for the sake of a job, but out of genuine interest and shared connections.

What tips would you give recent college grads?
