10 Books For Recent College Grads

Here are the 10 best books for college graduates. If you are feeling stuck, starting a new work chapter in your life, following a business venture or entering the workforce after bypassing college, you can still find something valuable in these books. - Ali in Bloom

I’m thankful to work at the company I do for many reasons. One of them: they promote ongoing education and learning. Through a number of helpful, enthusiastic co-workers, I’ve gained a bunch of career, self-help and motivational book recommendations. After keeping my own list for the past year, I really felt it was time to share the 10 best books for college graduates, according to my co-workers (and don’t worry, I trust them). Honestly, though, these books seem helpful for a lot more than just recent college grads. If you’re feeling stuck in your career, starting a new work chapter in your life, heading out on your own to follow a business venture or simply entering the workforce for the first time while bypassing college, I think you’ll still find something valuable in these books … or at least one or two of them.

College is hard. That's why it's important to surround yourself with positive people that can motivate, collaborate and stick together. Learn how. - Ali in Bloom

College is a really pivotal, developmental period in everyones’ lives, and you’re constantly surrounded by new people. Whether you realize it or not, the tribe you run with can greatly impact how your college years turn out. I’ve seen a number of students fail in their college careers because they chose to surround themselves with the wrong group of people and were negatively impacted.

Five on Friday | Vol. 2

I wrote volume one of Five on Friday back in July 2016, and I honestly loved it. It’s been on my mind ever since. Now more than ever feels like the perfect time to revisit this concept I fell in love with because it’s been a long time since I’ve written a post, let alone written about my life. So, in the spirit of overcoming my blogging rut, let’s talk about where I’ve been — and also where I’m going. I didn’t mean for this to happen, but when I picked out the five biggest things that have been happening in my life since last posting, I realized these five things are also things I really want to focus on and bring to my blog going forward, so if you love this Five on Friday, stick around, because you’ll love what’s coming next.

Oh, and P.S. I couldn’t be happier to be back.
