Post Grad: Five Women and Their First Year Out of College


In Post Grad: Five Women and Their First Year Out of College, I follow four of my college classmates for one year after graduation, jumping back and forth between their stories and my own. The book focuses on how we each navigated the transition between college and “real life.”

Post Grad is available on Amazon, Books-a-Million, Indiebound, Barnes & Noble, and your local bookstore.

Praise for Post Grad

"The creativity and courage at the foundation of these stories is worth a thousand hours of counseling in any college career office. I will be giving this book as a gift to all of my graduating senior advisees"
- Melissa Harris-Perry, Editor-at-Large at and former host on MSNBC


“Caroline Kitchener and her Ivy League classmates may not be exactly typical of their generation, but they are certainly entertaining. Post Grad will challenge many young college graduates to consider a much more diverse range of career paths."
 - Anne-Marie Slaughter, President and CEO, New America and author of Unfinished Business


"With unflinching curiosity, a clear eye, and an open heart, Caroline Kitchener set out to tell the story of five Princeton classmates in their first year after college. The result is fascinating, at times disturbing, often moving, and always achingly honest." 
 - Evan Thomas, bestselling author of Robert Kennedy: His Life and former Editor-at-Large at Newsweek


"Post Grad is sharply written and incredibly timely. Now more than ever we need women's stories to lead the way, and Kitchener does it marvelously."
- Jessica Valenti, founder of and bestselling author of Full-Frontal Feminism
