Hello my pretties! I have teamed up with Fifth Third Bank to introduce you to an opportunity of a lifetime! Are you or anyone you know a recent grad? I know that we all look forward to graduating. It’s exciting. We get a great sense of accomplishment and feel like we are the best we can be at that time. What about after graduation? The majority of grads start to feel a bit overwhelmed after they graduate. Take it from me. As a fairly recent grad, I felt all of these emotions. Just thinking about it right now brings me a great deal of anxiety. Did you know that the majority of grads do not have full time jobs? When the student loan bills start rolling in and the pressure of finding a job in your field kicks in, it can be extremely stressful! Did you know that on average there are over 200 applicants for each job and only 2% of those applicants receive interviews*? To top it off half of the jobs that are open, aren’t even posted on the internet**. Just knowing these facts alone, stresses me out. I wish I had more mentoring, more advice, and more preparation before graduating. I think every graduate needs a little bit of help. Fifth Third Bank is here to give just that.

  1. Going through a divorce, it was definitely a challenge to find a full-time job after being a stay-at-home mom. This sounds like a great service.

    His finding a job afterwards is also a huge concern of ours.

  6. Regan says:

    What a fabulous contest! I have a son who just finished his 10th grade year so college and paying for it are things that we are going to be thinking about very soon.

  7. those statistics are a bit scary for all the new graduates. But I know form working in a large corp for a long time that it is so true. There are so many jobs out there that were never publicized.

  8. Julie says:

    What a great resource for kids who have just graduated! Thanks for sharing the info – I have a few students who graduated in the spring who may be interested.

  9. lauriel says:

    Awesome. The college-to-workforce transition can be a challenging one, and this sounds like a great investment in oneself. It’s invaluable at any age, and great to be aware of when you’re younger than older!

    Such a great contest! The job market is so different then when I had entered.

  11. Michele says:

    It certainly isn’t easy for young people who just graduated to get a job–any job much less in the field they desire! Anythin or place that can help them gets my seal of approval.

  12. kandice says:

    pretty cool! good luck to those who apply

  13. It’s surprising how you get and apply for jobs now. I was old school and had to look in the newspaper.

  14. This is an awesome contest. Who wouldn’t want a free job coaching? Good luck to all those who are participating.

  15. Wendy says:
