From the Book:

Avoid the Biggest Mistake in Career Prep and Job Hunting

Remember how the nicest grade-school teachers always said, "There are no stupid questions." Well, I would add that there are no stupid ways to gain experience and look for a job. The only stupid thing you can do is nothing.

That's right; the worst mistake you can make is not to take any action at all. How do I know this? Because I did it. As you learned in the introduction, when I returned from graduate school in Australia and moved back into my old bedroom in my parent's house, I spent about a month under the covers. I did absolutely nothing, except sprain my ankle when I finally ventured out jogging one day. That led to another month of doing absolutely nothing.

By not taking any action at all, I pretty much guaranteed that I wouldn't find a job. Once I started making some phone calls, meeting some people for lunch, and sending out my resume, I built momentum and begun to find opportunities. The minute I took action - any action - things started happening.

Whenever you are stuck, frustrated, nervous, clueless, confused, discouraged, or overwhelmed, in my experience the answer is always action. Just do something. That's why this book is arranged in action-oriented tips. Every page includes a way for you to move forward, no matter where you are in the career planning process. And I recommend taking a least one career-related action every single day.

This is a great mind-set to keep with you at every stage of your career. As long as you're not standing still, you can rest assured that you're moving closer to your goals and dreams.

Maxwell Platoff of Brooklyn, NY says, "Throughout my time in college, I admit to espousing a fairly na´ve and arrogant attitude about how one moves from education into the workplace, being fairly blind to my own sense of entitlement. I repeatedly spurned the advice that my friends and family tried to offer me, and as a result I made little progress when I finally graduated and expected my life to fall into place without my own involvement. Finally, after little success, I came to my senses and decided to seek help from an expert in order to gain some perspective. Lindsay Pollak's Getting From College to Career had been recommended by various sources and seemed like a worthwhile read, and I am incredibly glad that I bought it.
