Bargaineering 2010 New Graduate Guide

Posted By Jim On 05/16/2010 @ 7:05 am In Personal Finance | 15 Comments

Welcome to Bargaineering’s 2010 New Graduate Guide! This entire week will be devoted to focusing on financial advice for new graduates. It doesn’t matter if you graduated high school, college, or graduate school, the information we present this week will help you get started on the right foot.

When you start working, you will be inundated with a lot of information. It’ll be difficult to separate the important from the mundane and the applicable from the irrelevant. I’ll go through a checklist of what new graduates need to know about real life. Many of these lessons were borne out of my own experiences, which likely won’t be much different than what graduates are experiencing today.

To give you a sense of my experience, I graduated college shortly after the dot com bust. The economy as a whole wasn’t nearly as weak as it is now but my area of expertise, software, was. The world as I knew it shares many of the characteristics of the world many graduates are seeing today. Hopefully that insight will prove to provide helpful color to the discussions.

Links will go live once the articles are published.
