This versatile, brief text can be used as a supplement within an established student success course or as a stand-alone text in any course, seminar, or workshop that emphasizes career and life planning. The book's emphasis on planning makes it different from typical job-hunting guides. Most of the pages are devoted to helping students figure out how to find rewarding work they can be passionate about, with somewhat less attention given to the mechanics of job-hunting.
