About This Episode:

What things in addition to your degree does it take to get the job you want? There can be a lot to consider: grades, soft skills, technical skills, resume and networking. And at times it can get overwhelmingly confusing to know which one to start with. Don't worry though, on this episode of the Business, Life, and Coffee podcast, author Jena Burgess, PHR talks about all this and more.

Her new book Super Qualified is a roadmap that includes the student voice in the conversation that colleges and companies are having about the perception, realities and practicalities of being qualified for work.

This episode is great for college students, parents of college students, and professionals looking to make a return to grad school.
