Scott Gerber Tells Us To Never Get A Real Job

Remember earlier this year Entrepreneur Magazine columnist Scott Gerber sent out a call looking for interesting stories for a new book titled Never Get a “Real” Job? Well, it looks like the book is finally finished and will hit bookstores everywhere on December 7, 2010!

The columnist and serial entrepreneur has a commendable goal of helping young people to overcome the devastating impact of youth unemployment and underemployment by teaching them how to be entrepreneurial. Between writing his book and getting youth to destroy their resumes, Gerber is also the founder of the Young Entrepreneur Council, which he’s set up – comprising of the world’s top young entrepreneurs, business owners and thought leaders – to carry out his goal of combating youth unemployment.

In any case, do check Never Get a “Real” Job out.
