You'll learn a lot of things in college, but there's one thing the textbooks won't teach you: how to acquire marketable job skills before you graduate.

Award-winning college professor and student adviser Bill Coplin has been developing skill-based liberal arts curricula for more than 30 years, and has helped thousands of students get great jobs. Here, he lays down the essential skills you need to survive and succeed in today's job market, based on his extensive interviews with employers, recruiters, human resource specialists, and employed college grads. Going beyond test scores and GPAs, Coplin teaches you how to develop real-world know-how in ten crucial skill groups:

Work Ethic
Physical Performance
Speaking
Writing
Teamwork
Influencing People
Research
Number Crunching
Critical Thinking
Problem Solving

Mastering these 10 THINGS, you'll earn not only your degree but also the skills you need to impress employers and land your dream job right after college.
