About Monty Clark

Monty Clark's career in higher education has included serving as a teacher, guest lecturer, Department Chair, Dean of Academic Affairs, and Campus Director for various colleges across the country. He discovered his passion for improving the educational experience while helping students prepare to graduate from college. Over the years, Monty has worked with hundreds of faculty and administrators and provided guidance and mentorship to ten times as many students, engaging with people from every socioeconomic background. He began noticing an issue that the educational system has had difficulty in effectively addressing - the student's ability to turn what they have learned into relevant usable skills to meet the needs of today's rapidly-changing marketplace. Monty found his niche for providing the information and skills that aren't specifically taught in schools, such as the practical topics of personal financial management, resume/portfolio development, interview techniques and building the framework to become successful in today's marketplace. His success has come from personal experience in applying the concepts he expounds in this book. Monty spent years working with the Education Management Corporation system of for-profit colleges in various roles. He stayed with the company through its acquisition by the Goldman Sachs investment group, but after a few years with the firm's new direction, he decided to break out and focus on what he saw as gaps in the educational process.
