New or Used: $21.00
This updated career guide for teens draws on simplified principles of What Colour Is Your Parachute? to help high school and college students zero in on their favourite skills and find a perfect major or career. As a result of the current economic climate, young adults are forced to think about positioning themselves in a career earlier - they can't just wing it when they graduate and count on getting a job. Furthermore, since the college tuition bubble has burst, teens have to think seriously before they get into debt that doesn't pay equal dividends in salary later. What Colour Is Your Parachute? For Teens helps teens plan for these challenges, while nurturing their dreams and passions with exciting possibilities. With even more examples of transferable skills and an expanded emphasis on foot-in-the-door internships, this new edition balances nitty-gritty details with big-picture meaning. Richard Bolles and Carol Christen's warm, hopeful tone is perfect for teens searching for their dream career - and the parents and counsellors looking to inspire them.
