How to Become a "Recession-Proof Graduate" and Get Your Dream Job

Looking for an alternative to CareerBuilder and Monster? You might want to listen to what superstar marketer Charlie Hoehn has to say. If you're sick of getting rejection letters and would like to start getting called by companies who want to hire you, free work is the answer. Charlie says free work isn't what you think it is — it's not an internship. Instead, it's freelance projects that you pick to work on, which does not entail running around getting coffee for people.

Another great piece of advice from the marketing guru who worked with Tim Ferriss is that resumes are passé, because your employer will definitely Google you to see what's out there so you need to start developing your online presence. Watch the video below for more of his tips:

A-friggen'-men. When I was working four part time jobs at the same time, I took the opportunity to volunteer as a high school coach. Now, I'm a full-salaried college coach after a year -- and that was a job I also offered to do for free. This stuff works, folks! And since most recent grads end up moving back in with parents anyway, there's really nothing to loose trying this out.
