Details

Career Wisdom for College Students is a career advice book for those who need it most—college students facing monumental decisions about their future but who may not have all the information they need. Offering insight readers won't get in class, on the Internet, or from their parents, expert author Peter Vogt guides college students through the process of career preparation. While many books exist to aid the first-time job seeker or the recent college graduate, few offer help during the formative time when a major is chosen, an initial career path is charted, and internship and work experience opportunities abound.

This volume consists of more than 60 advice articles separated into four major sections: "Take A Look Around—A Real Look Around," "Be Careful What You Think You Know," "Build Your Skills and Experience Through Hands-on Activities," and "Land the Job You Really Want." An epilogue offers advice on getting the most out of your campus career counselor, and an appendix suggests helpful resources for further research or career exploration.

Topics include:
  • What Are You Good At? Ask Someone Else!
  • You Can Make a Career Out of Almost Anything
  • Career Decision-Making Traps to Avoid
  • Money, Status, and Power Aren't the Only Forms of Pay
  • Experience Isn't Optional; It's Essential
  • Don't Take Your Technology Skills for Granted
  • Introverts Can Network Too
  • "Out-research" Your Competitors, Win the Job.
