Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the coming year, college graduates will have a more difficult time than ever entering the job market. Opportunities in traditional fields are shrinking as the competition increases exponentially. Despite this glaring truth, far too many post-collegians automatically consider the most visible, traditional careers - usually out of confusion, uncertainty, and peer and parental pressures. Fields like law, medicine, and banking (just to name a few) are often overpopulated, and thus extremely competitive for entry level positions.
 
In COLLEGE GRAD SEEKS FUTURE, Howard and Matthew Greene will help post-collegians to find their true calling, pursue the field that best fits their talents and passion, and utilize their unique skills to build a career efficiently and effectively. The Greenes explain to readers the highly individualistic nature of choosing a career, the interesting choices that are frequently overlooked, and the imaginative ways in which young adults can identify their goals and take the necessary steps to realize them.
 
Howard Greene, M.A., M.Ed., is a former admissions officer at Princeton. As the founder of Howard Greene & Associates, he has counseled thousands of students in the past forty years.

Matthew Greene, Ph.D., is Educational Director of Howard Greene & Associates. He is a frequent presenter on educational planning and college admissions, and is interviewed regularly by national news media, including The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. The Greenes are co-hosts of two national PBS programs on planning and paying for college and authors of numerous books.
