What's Inside

For recent college graduates, it’s hard to find a job that you love, decide if you can live on your own, manage your finances, and maintain relationships. But this often dubbed “quarterlife crisis” does not have to be a catastrophe! In fact, it can be quite useful—even essential—to success!

In Ramen Noodles, Rent and Resumes: An After-College Guide to Life, author Kristen Fischer encourages grads to embrace—instead of dread—life after school. She introduces the concept of “The After-College,” in which graduates learn to thrive during their 20s. Highlighting dozens of real-life graduates who have navigated their way through this challenging but exciting phase of life, Ramen Noodles, Rent and Resumes is packed with valuable strategies for career advancement and personal growth.
