What If You Could Tap into the Career Advice of 100 Graduates 10 Years out of University?

Hi, I’m Paul. I have over 13 years experience working in various finance roles for PriceWaterhouseCoopers, ThomsonReuters, Eurostar, and GlaxoSmithKline.

I’m also a qualified Project Manager (Prince2), programme Manager (MSP), and Lean Six Sigma Black Belt.

Despite the above, I’m not a huge fan of my career path 🙁

Lot’s of my friends in their 30’s don’t like their jobs either. They find themselves in careers where they feel stuck for various reasons; not getting paid enough, they are bored, lack of opportunities, etc. I wondered if this was a common problem for people in their 30s?

So I decided to write a book interviewing 100 graduates 10 years on from university about their career paths and their career advice for young people.

1,252 copies of ‘1000 Years of Career Advice’ were downloaded in the first 5 days of it’s launch making it a #1 Amazon BestSeller.

This blog contains interviews from the book and career advice for young people from ex graduates who have learned the hard way.

If you’ve any questions, feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn. I’m really keen to pass on this great career advice to young people as much as I can.
