As a recent grad, there are a few things that you should get started on today that will play a pivotal part in your career. Some of you may have already gotten on top of these things as students, but if you haven’t, it’s not too late.
Brazen Careerist details a checklist of things you should get accomplished within the first 200 days post graduation:
