Description:

Whether it’s finding your feet in a new work environment, learning the tools to treat yourself better, or getting inspiration to take the next big step you need – with Growth we want to help you find the books that will help you show up, and glow up.

For our very first segment we’re excited to bring you a discussion between Kyyah Abdul and Ashley Stoyanov Ojeda on their books THE PREPARED GRADUATE and JEFA IN TRAINING

ABOUT THE PREPARED GRADUATE

This book offers professional advice about career preparation and maybe the best college graduation gift you’ll ever receive.

Too many people end up working jobs they didn’t study for. In the PREPARED GRADUATE, Kyyah Abdul provides tools to help you proactively prepare for post-graduate life. Abdul speaks to Generation Z and Millennials, addressing many of the concerns students (and parents) have about pre-and post-graduation. She offers extensive job search tips and work advice, such as guidance on writing the perfect resume, excelling in job interviews, networking in-person and online, negotiating job salaries, paying off student loans, and more. Abdul offers trusted guidance, armed with first-hand experience with the lack of preparation universities provide their students. Kyyah set out to forge her own path for finding relevant work post-graduation. Her strategies helped her land jobs in several STEM positions both during and after college. Over time, Kyyah created this comprehensive roadmap full of work advice for college seniors through summer up until the end of their first year as a graduate.

ABOUT JEFA IN TRAINING

Jefas, now is the time to build your enterprise.

The only Spanglish project-launching toolkit and planner, JEFA IN TRAINING is especially made for the new generation of women. In it you’ll find intimate conversations with first-generation Latinas, Latina immigrants, and women of color. JEFA IN TRAINING delves into their experiences in financial, media, entrepreneurial, and creative spaces. Within its pages you’ll explore a complex view that covers everything from imposter syndrome to bilingualism. Taking you from conception to post-launch, JEFA IN TRAINING invites you to let go of your fears and finally launch that blog, business, project, or platform. Whether a solopreneur or startup founder, this colorful compendium of lessons, interviews, and worksheets, is everything you need to take your side hustle to the next level, start working for yourself, and turn your ideas into something much bigger.

This event is free and open to all, accessible through our Facebook and Youtube pages (@busboysandpoets).
