Publisher Comments:

In today’s über-competitive climate, you have to start thinking about positioning yourself for a career earlier—you can't just wing it when you graduate and count on finding a great job (or a great job finding you). It pays to figure out your passion early, in order to know what additional schooling—and tuition debt—makes sense for your chosen field. Career authorities Carol Christen and Richard N. Bolles will not only help you plan for these decisions, but will also help you define your unique passions that will lead to your dream job. With new chapters on social media and sustainable jobs—along with all-new profiles of twentysomethings who’ve found work in solar energy, magazine writing, and more—this new edition has all the nitty-gritty details you’ll need to get started now. Most importantly, it’s packed with the big-picture advice that will set you up to land the job that’s perfect for who you are—and who you want to be.

Synopsis:
