Now What

by Ari King


It's normal to feel lost in the aftermath of college graduation. After a decade-and-a-half spent learning, many young graduates struggle to find their way into a career they want, or to figure out what career they want in the first place.

Funded by a successful Kickstarter campaign, writer Ari King interviews a wide range of professionals about the anxious period between college graduation and the discovery of their ideal career. Interviewees range from the know-it-alls who had their lives planned meticulously by freshman year, to those who took their time figuring out what they enjoy, and even those who changed their mind and switched careers decades later. King's book draws out pieces of timeless wisdom and profound emotional insight for the benefit of anyone struggling with questions like, 'What should I do with the rest of my life?'
