What is Gradspot.com?
Gradspot.com is the premier online destination for life after college. While other sites can help you search for apartments, write a resume, or file your taxes, we know that the transition from school to the “real world” is a lot trickier than most people think. After dealing with a seemingly endless array of post-grad problems ourselves, we wished that there had been a resource to help us navigate questions like “how do I get health insurance without a job?” and “what varieties of cheese take the longest to go bad?” We realized that millions of graduates grope blindly through the same issues year after year, so we built Gradspot.com as a place where every college senior and recent graduate can visit for daily advice, entertainment, and community.
How do I use the site?
The backbone of Gradspot.com is made up of Guides, which are in-depth how-to guides dealing with the most common post-grad issues. These are organized into five categories: Housing, Career, Money, Lifestyle, and Health.
The information is supplemented by Blog Posts from recent graduates trying to jumpstart their adult lives across the country. In addition, we’re always keeping our eyes out for anything on the Web that might make your life a little easier—or at least make the day go by quicker.
Is that all?
No! We don’t just want to talk about the issues facing recent graduates—we also want to provide the tools to make your transition as seamless as possible. The first tool we've released is our Question & Answer section, which enables anyone to ask questions that are answered by the rest of the recent grad community (we're all in it together) as well as topic experts from Gradspot.com. And more is on the way!
Who is Gradspot?
While we value the wisdom of age and consult with a wide array of topic experts, all of our writers have an intimate understanding about what life after college means today…not in 1963.
