In the last year, alone, half of college graduates are either jobless or underemployed in positions that don’t fully use their skills and knowledge. Authors Tori Randolph Terhune, a gainfully-employed young college graduate herself, and Betsy A. Hays, a college professor, show readers what they can do in college to successfully pave the way for future employment in Land Your Dream Career. The authors provide eleven easy-to-follow strategies for effectively using time on campus to start building a career. Terhune and Hays leads students through content designed to help students set themselves up for success, without focusing on grades or papers. The eleven steps include tips about how students can become experts in their fields, build their brand, get involved in and outside the classroom, allow for wiggle room, network, follow the 75/25 rule (75% thinking, 25% doing) and use new media, such as social networking and blogging, to launch their career. Any student looking for that connection from college to getting to their dream career needs to read Land Your Dream Career. Terhune and Hays make it known that landing a good job is not impossible!

Der Kalte Krieg ist seit über zwanzig Jahren vorbei, doch das postsowjetische Russland sucht noch immer nach einer neuen Identität. Während man im Westen nach wie vor von der Gorbatschow-Zeit schwärmt, will man sie in Russland am liebsten vergessen. Inzwischen gilt Stalin dort vielen, auch unter den Jüngeren, wieder als großer Staatsmann, wie überhaupt die sozialistische Vergangenheit immer öfter nostalgisch verklärt wird. Für Swetlana Alexijewitsch leben die Russen gleichsam in einer Zeit des "secondhand", der gebrauchten Ideen und Worte. Wie ein vielstimmiger Chor erzählen die Menschen in ihrem neuen Buch von der radikalen gesellschaftlichen Umwälzung in den zurückliegenden Jahren.
