Memorial Day signals the unofficial start of summer, and for most schools, it marks the end of the busy graduation season. However, as this year’s seniors graduate, many NACE members were curious about how they could best share some final tips and advice as these grads transition from academia to the workforce.

This led to a topic on the NACE Community last week seeking book recommendations share with graduating seniors about the enter the workforce for the first time. Because of the popularity of this thread, we decided to highlight some of the recommendations below. While NACE cannot necessarily vouch for all these selections, all titles below have been recommended from both our career services members and our employer members. So, if you’re looking for a gift for your graduating interns, recommendations for graduating seniors, or simply some summer reading to help you prepare for the upcoming academic year, this list could be a great place to start!

If you have another title that you don’t see listed here, be sure to share it in the NACE Community or let us know on LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook!
