- Author BiographyStefana M. Albu had an eye-opening epiphany during her experience as a graduate student. Among the scene of bustling chaos, she realized that the face of societal expectations, education, and employment for those in their twenties is rapidly changing right before our eyes. She graduated magna cum laude from Wheaton College (MA) in 2010 with a double-major in Psychobiology and German. Ms. Albu combined knowledge from both subject areas to pursue a Fulbright research scholarship at the Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry in Munich, Germany. Ms. Albu went on to earn her M.A. in Neuroscience from Brown University and it was during her graduate studies that she recognized a disjuncture between college education and career development for the recent graduate. One could draw much insight from seminars, workshops, and labs, but where were the tools for dealing with the changing parameters of the twenty-first century? Albu set out to write a contemporary handbook disclosing the essential approaches for financial independence, building strong relationships, and establishing a profession-all milestones on a revised timeline for today's twenty-somethings. Her fresh perspective on the challenges millennials face offers an insider look into navigating life after college in an ever-changing economy.
