Group Of Diverse International Students Celebrating Graduation

I recently had the pleasure of advising a bright, young woman who was about to graduate from college. She won my "Working with Wisdom" book and an hour Wisdom Mentoring session at one of my speaking events.

My typical mentoring clients are women professionals and entrepreneurs so I wondered what I would share with someone who is just starting out. I soon found my advice was similar to what I told my own children when they were growing up and when they graduated from high school. Connor and Allyson will both graduate with honors from the University of Georgia in December, after 3 1/2 years. 

My advice was a combination of wisdom and marketing strategies. If your own children are about to graduate or you know someone who is, please share these three tips with them and see the special offer below.

  1. Ask for Information. Tap into your network (through tools like LinkedIn) and the networks of your contacts to identify people who do what you want to do or work where you want to work. Ask for a half-hour informational interview to learn more. You'll be a more savvy job searcher and the good impressions you make with each contact will be remembered when job opportunities arise. This will give you a boost beyond just applying to job postings.
  2. Talk to Yourself. Pay attention to what you're telling yourself as you prepare for interviews and network. Make sure your words are empowering and kind so you will stay positive and confident. Use affirmations like: "I have all the skills and abilities to be a valuable asset to this company." "I look forward to meeting people today who can help me find my ideal job."
  3. Picture It! What can you visualize about your job search? Perhaps it's making the best impression during an interview. Or, you might visualize yourself working somewhere you're appreciated and rewarded for all your talents. A picture is worth a thousand words, but it takes more than just seeing to get the results. Visualization is a three-step, repetitive process that connects you with your subconscious mind. To give it the power you need to succeed, engage all your senses. What do you hear, smell, touch, and taste? And, infuse it with the positive emotions you would feel if this were a reality - like happiness, pride, and maybe even relief. Commit to seeing your goals as "real," and they soon will be. Consider creating a vision board to accelerate the visualization process.
*******Looking for a Wise Graduation Present?*******
Who needs another pen or paperweight? Give that graduate the gift of wisdom with a certificate for an hour Wisdom Mentoring session. I usually charge $250 a Wisdom Mentoring session but have reduced it to $150, exclusively for recent graduates. This offer is good through August. 

Interested? Just send an email to with Graduate Mentoring in the subject.

Have You Heard What They're Saying?
"Simple but brilliant! That's Tricia Molloy's 'Work-Life Balance Wisdom' program. 


"Tricia spoke to more than 600 AT&T employees at our headquarters in Dallas and via webcast to AT&T offices throughout the country. She got us to think about our lives in a different way. Her empowering message struck a chord with so many of us, regardless of our level or lifestyle. We followed up the event with a book giveaway to encourage participants to improve their balance by making conscious choices-like cleaning out technical clutter and using positive affirmations. 


"Even a respected senior executive who is known for her commitment to balance said she learned some new strategies that she'll apply right away."
Tiffany Jenkins, Director of Audit Services
