Hip Hop Artist & Professor Join Forces to Battle Difficult Job Market

Timid and Dr. ChiagourisNew York, NY-October 17, 2011 - Hip-hop artist Timid has created a unique and encouraging music video titled, I Want the Secret, in conjunction with the critically acclaimed book, The Secret To Getting A Job After College: Marketing Tactics to Turn Degrees into Dollars, from Pace University professor and branding expert Dr. Larry Chiagouris.

The message is clear in Timid's lyrics and in the book: Excel in school, but be aware that good grades are not enough to succeed in today's competitive job market. Know your value and do not be afraid to stand apart from the majority. It is your individuality---your unique perspective and your specific skills that you will share with the world that will bring you the greatest success.

Although they have different styles of delivering their message, the message is still the same.

Dr. Chiagouris says, "I wanted to find another individual who had a definitive message and who was making a positive difference in this world. I found this in the hip-hop artist Timid. I saw Timid's video the Inferno and I immediately wanted to work with him. The message hits hard with its break down of the monotonous trap that society expects one to fall into and how he will not accept it. Timid breaks free by following the fire within and exceeds societal expectations. I found his message to be in tune with what I was expressing through The Secret to Getting a Job After College and the collaboration began. I asked Timid to take the concepts of the book and write lyrics that reflect the challenges graduates confront when seeking to make a difference in the world. This is how I Want the Secret was born. "
