Have you graduated from college within the past few years? Do you have financial advice you’d like to pass along to the Class of 2015? Money would like to know about it.
For an upcoming story in Money magazine, we’d like to include tips from recent college graduates (Class of 2012 or later) on how to navigate one’s financial life in the first years out of college.
Specifically, we’d like to know what you have done to get your finances on the right track. Did you, unlike most new graduates, negotiate your starting salary at your first job? How much of your salary are you saving, and what are you doing to make that easier? What did you do about signing up for a 401(k) account? How are you managing housing costs? How do you stay on top of student debt? What are you doing to cut the financial cord with your parents when it comes to expenses like health insurance, car insurance, or cell phone plans?
Do you have a story to share about how you dealt with one of these or other financial issues? If so, tell us about it using the confidential form below. We’ll be in touch for more information if we’re considering your story for publication. And if we do use your story, we may photograph you for the magazine.
