Entering the workforce after college can be scary to say the least, especially if a graduate is unprepared or ill-equipped to seek out an appropriate career path or job opportunity. This practical manual dispenses invaluable tips, strategies, and advice to students preparing for the job market by guiding choices impacting academic courses, fields of study, and future marketability.

Written by a 25-year veteran in the field of career counseling, this guidebook helps students undecided about their future navigate the intimidating journey from college to career readiness. Content explores the best strategies and tips for choosing a career, ways to overcome common career indecisiveness, suggestions for careers based on personality type, and the latest employment projections and salary figures. Chapters for students with atypical circumstances--such as older adults, veterans, those with criminal records, and those with special needs--examine the unique paths available to them as they define their skills and launch their careers after graduation. Features: Features personal career stories of several well-known individuals; Introduces a five-step schematic that illustrates the career decision-making process; Identifies the best careers for your personality style; Lays out the steps involved in choosing a major; Illustrates the relationship between college majors and careers"--The publisher.
