As a college student who is inching ever closer to that dreaded graduation date one day at a time, the reality of entering the job market during a recession is always looming in the back of my mind. The only consolation being of course, that I am not alone in this, as my entire generation struggles to learn how to navigate the new “normal” of job hunting and survival.
Enter the aptly named ebook “Share or Die” from Shareable.net, a collection of essays giving voice to Generation Y, documenting the lives of recent grads. Containing nearly 30 essays, cartoons, instructional how-to’s, and guides from contributors of Shareable.net, Share or Die is the first ebook of its kind. It’s the complete resouce for post-college grads and others looking to adopt a more collaborative lifestyle.
“A new economy based in collaboration rather than competition is growing, and young people are at the cutting edge. Unsatisfied with their parents’ communities, 20-somethings are using technology to build an entire infrastructure of social entrepreneurship dedicated to using less and sharing more. Share or Die chronicles some of these projects and gives readers the tools they need to join this new economy.”
There you have it, the concept of swapping and sharing is the way of the future! Check out the essays as a free e-book at Shareable.net or download as a full PDF for only $15.
