Start Your Career
Susan M. Katz ’96 • C&M Online Media, 2013

Start Your Career

Start Your Career: 5 Steps to Finding the Right Job after College provides the answer to the question all college students will face upon graduation: now what? In five steps, the author demonstrates how to turn a college degree into a personally satisfying career. Her advice, based on years of working closely with career counselors, recruiters, and students, ranges from identifying skill sets to creating a network and preparing for job interviews.

Separate Worlds: A Journey of Discovery
W. Almas Tynan ’50 • CreateSpace, 2011

Separate Worlds: A Journey of Discovery

Meeting on a London-bound plane, George and Andria fall in love while viewing the sights of the British capital and touring the rural Cotswolds. But, can the 50-year-old small-town Texas widower and a beautiful 37-year-old Washington, D.C., socialite widow share a life together—especially when an ambitious congressman, conniving to become president, dangles before her the prospect of becoming first lady of the land?

William A. Tynan ’50 (aka W. Almas Tynan) is an engineer and a columnist for a national amateur radio magazine. His novel Scot-Free: 9/11 Interrupts Their Plan was published in 2009.

Hit the Job Writing
Joseph Judge ’78 • Rise and Shine Press, 2013

Hit the Job Writing

Hit the Job Writing is a practical, easy-to-understand, entertaining book about the fundamentals of writing in the workplace. This sequel to Hit the Job Running helps young professionals hone their business writing skills. The workbook is full of real-world exercises and solutions on topics from grammar and style to tact, diplomacy, and persuasion. True improvement in writing comes only from doing: in a workshop, in a workbook, or on the job.

Joseph Judge ’78 is a serial careerist lately working as a civil servant in Pennsylvania, who says he spent too many years at RPI, mainly to support his habit—playing the trumpet.

Common Ground
Richard David Bach ’55 • eBook, 2013

Common Ground

When smart young private investigator Kayman Karl reluctantly agrees to sell her P.I. firm to a sleazy competitor, neither she nor new husband Raam Commoner have any idea the decision will plunge them into a desperate search for a manuscript that could expose the lethal operations of an underworld employment agency—a hiring hall for hitmen.

Richard David Bach ’55 was founding chair of the Environmental Law Practice Group at Stoel Rives, LLP, in Portland, Ore. Common Ground is the second book in his Common Denominator series of romantic thrillers.
