Celebrating a rite of passage for many into adult life,
this hilarious book offers tongue-in-cheek observations
on making life choices for recent college graduates,
their friends and families, and anyone who faces the
bewildering question What do I want to do with my life?
The father-son writing team offers comical commentary and
surprisingly realistic advice on getting a job, choosing
a career path, making decisions about living at home or
in an apartment, and, above all, crafting an impressive
personal update for the alumni magazine. Suggestions
address common transitional challenges such as faking a
go-getter attitude and determining who will really give a
good letter of recommendation.
""This is such a useful and hilarious book, it made me want to go back to college again! If only I had a father like Larry Arnstein to pay my tuition." "This is such a useful and hilarious book, it made me want to go back to college again! If only I had a father like Larry Arnstein to pay my tuition." --Marvin Kitman, media critic, "Newsday" "Along with jug chablis, pirated cable, and a big spattering pot of lentil soup, The Dog Ate My Resume is a must have for all under-employed 21-year-olds! (Or 32-year-olds, depending on how much time you wasted while trying to graduate college.) A hilarious and fast read." --Sandra Tsing Loh, author and NPR commentator
