Inceptia Publishes Fifth Annual "Great Advice for Grads"

Lincoln, Neb. (April 4, 2018) – In honor of the Class of 2018, Inceptia has published “Great Advice for Grads,” a collection of articles that offers practical advice regarding money, student loans, and career.


Developed through a collaborative relationship with the personal finance site NerdWallet, the e-guide features information by finance and career experts, with articles chosen specifically for their graduate-relevant content at a time when it is needed most.


This year marks the fifth annual issue of the publication, with this year’s guide expected to be even more widely utilized than previous editions, said Carissa Uhlman, vice president of student success.


"With each year that we publish Great Advice for Grads, we see huge increases of downloads from students. This tells us that not only are more colleges and educators relying on this valuable resource to assist grads, but also that students really need this kind of information at this important juncture in their lives."


The 2018 e-guide features content that addresses timely issues for graduating students, including:

  • How I Ditched Student Debt
  • Yes, You Need a 401(k) in Your 20s — Here’s Why
  • Should You Spend, Save or Invest Your Graduation Gift?
  • Should I Pick My First Job Based on My Debt?


Making the guide available electronically is a key factor in reaching students. "We know that graduation is a busy time, and the last thing we want to do is bog students down with more paperwork that can easily get lost in the shuffle. Creating an e-guide is the best way to provide students and their families with the information they need now, and that they can revisit as needed in the future."
