This week we provide links to blogs and articles for students and new graduates.
On GetSmarterAboutMoney.ca the Investor Education Fund provides Money essentials: A survival kit for students, including how to manage student debt so it doesn’t get out of control.

Don’t miss the Harvard Business Review’s Twelve rules for new grads. My favourite is “learn to listen and listen to learn.”
Finally, Gerald McGroarty shares Five secrets to finding a better work-life balance on BrighterLife.ca.
