Only 5 Percent of Jobs are Targeted at New College Grads: How to Secure One of Them

Vertical Media Solutions’ Gift Packages Provide New Grads with a Total Career Toolkit to Increase Employment Success

Grand Rapids, MI – Those looking for a way to help a recent college grad jumpstart their career now have a way to make a real impact on their loved one’s life. Vertical Media Solutions (VMS), a nationwide leader in career preparation services and coaching, has developed a line of gift packages that gives grads that extra real-life education that they weren’t provided in school. Statistically, data shows that recent college grads are having a tough time making that all-important transition. As of May, 13.8 percent of 18 to 29-year-olds were not employed. While that number is better than in years past, it is still higher than the national jobless rate of 5.4 percent. Even more challenging, only 5 percent of all job openings are targeted at new college graduates.

Giving someone a professional resume, cover letter, LinkedIn profile and career coaching propels their career forward by helping them skip the awkward learning phase when they are first thrust into the working world. Additionally, studies show that having a professionally written resume makes a job seeker 40 percent more likely to find a job.

Here are some benefits that a professional resume gift package offers:
• Gift vouchers that never expire
• A unique, yet functional, gift that grads will truly benefit from
• Provides the solid foundation that grads need to build upon in the future
• Guides job seekers toward success in less time

In addition to helping get a loved one’s career off on the right foot, gift grantors get several impressive cost-savings when purchasing the Vertical Media Solutions gift packages. For example, all packages have a flat rate instead of sliding scale fees. Additionally, when choosing a complete package, VMS will include free career coaching, which equates to a $100 value. Best of all, the purchasing process couldn’t be easier. Simply purchase the packages online, or call Vertical Media Solutions at 616-631-4300.
