GradDash is a community of college graduates working to get jobs.
Hi, I’m Dustin Pearce—Career Coach at GradDash and graduate of Miami University. Eight months after graduation 50% of my class was still unemployed—and not because we didn’t try hard enough. College prepared us to DO a job, but we had no idea how to GET a job.
During those long, unemployed months, I became determined not to let my story repeat for any other student. Thus, GradDash was born. I found that in order to go the distance between college and career every graduate needs money, hope, and a proven plan.
GradDash understands that helping struggling college graduates find jobs in their field involves more than polished resumes and better interview skills. Recent college graduates need real guidance managing:
1. New financial responsibilities. Managing a written budget & paying off student loans
2. Unemployment depression. Gaining outside perspective and mentorship from other grads
3. Isolation from peers. Creating a proven approach to the job search
