Brian L. Mackey ★★★★★

Amazing 333 tips! Just the best. Very comprehensible, applicable and relevant. Great job.

Description

There are at least two reasons to download this book of tips. One is to find practical and encouraging advice on how to find graduate employment. The second reason is that the authors are giving all proceeds from the download of the book to charity.

In 2009, there were 2.5 million children under age 15 living with HIV. By downloading this book, you will support UNICEF’s Unite for Children, Unite against AIDS campaign raising money and awareness about HIV and AIDS and helping millions of affected children and families.

Preface

The authors offer this book of tips to achieve two purposes. The first purpose is to support graduates who want some encouragement or practical advice on how to find employment. The second purpose grew from discussions with a small group of graduates of the University of Brighton, with whom the first draft was discussed, and with whom we agreed to give all proceeds, from downloading the book, to charity.

In 2009, there were 2.5 million children under age 15 living with HIV. By downloading this book, you will support UNICEF’s Unite for Children, Unite against AIDS campaign raising money and awareness about HIV and AIDS and helping millions of affected children and their families.

By 2015 it is possible that we could have an AIDS free generation. But UNICEF needs your help to get there. The rights of children are being denied because of HIV and AIDS. This is wrong. By downloading this book you will help UNICEF put it right.
