Katherine Schwarzenegger: I Just Graduated, Now What?

Posted: Updated:

Katherine Schwarzenegger, the daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver, didn't let her post-grad confusion get her down. Instead, she used her family's connections to reach out to her influential, high-powered friends for some much needed advice.

The result was her second book titled I Just Graduated. . . Now What?: Honest Answers from Those Who Have Been There, which chronicles these celebs' stories as well as her own.

"The book is all about advice for recent or not as recent college grads," Schwarzenegger told SheKnow.com. "I graduated from college almost two years ago from USC [University of Southern California] and had no idea what I wanted to do after college and had a lot of anxiety about it."

"I blindly e-mailed a bunch of people to interview for this book," Schwarzenegger continued. "Some said 'no' and some said 'yes,' which was awesome."

Katherine joins Lisa Breckenridge and Maria Sansone on Good Day L.A.
