“Those looking for their first or next job need solid advice from a career mentor with contemporary, been-there-done-that experience. In Hopeful to Hired, Adam Dince has not only provided that much needed counsel, he has created a comprehensive playbook for today’s job seeker.”- Mark S. Babbitt, CEO and Founder of YouTern
Adam Dince has written an exceptionally valuable 21st Century handbook for students. Filled with important insights and solid practical advice, Hopeful to Hired: How to Score the Job You Want Straight Out of College is the book I want my students to read well before their final year of college. As much as we provide advisement at the University level, students sometimes need to hear advice from an outside professional. Dince’s professional resume is robust with many experiences, and his book is equally robust. Students who follow Dince’s suggestions will be far better candidates for their first job after graduation.- Dorothy S. Pisarski, Associate Professor, Advertising, Drake University
As a professor at a 2-year technical school, we work on a short time line to get our students the experience and skills needed to land a job. Reading this book chapter by chapter and implementing Adam's advice can catapult our students to success.- Jessi (Amazon Review)
I wish I and all my friends had this book when I was an undergrad. It likely would have saved us a year or so of unemployment or unpaid internships that lead nowhere after we graduated. Even though the book specializes on college students, the information within is indispensable for anyone looking—or even thinking about looking—for a new job!- Patrick (Amazon Review)
As a current college student I found this book to be very helpful! It shares many tips on how to get a job right out of college or even before college. It really made me think about what I could be doing now to optimize my chances in the job market. The author shares many relevant personal stories about the steps he took to get to the successful career he has now. He seems like a very relatable kind hearted person who wants to help people reach their goals. This book was very easy to read; I finished it in less than 24 hours! I would recommend this book to any college student looking to get to the top of the application piles!- Sara (Amazon Review)
