"Guide students through the career decision-making process as it pertains to college choices with this manual that helps students identify interest, skills, and values; conduct career research; and prepare for a profession after graduation. 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.

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.
