A funky and informative workbook designed to help teenagers make good decisions when taking the sometimes scary step of entering life after school
Heather McAllister has drawn on her experience as a career coach to create an essential resource for schools, students, and parents alike. This attractive and fun-to-use guide gets its readers asking the right questions about themselves. Although it is light, informal, and thought provoking, it draws on the insights of three great philosophers—Sartre, who says we are what we choose; Heidegger, who says we are the values that we choose; and Nietzsche, who says we are our passions. Utilizing an innovative approach to career counseling for "Generation Y," it encourages students to focus on their strengths and interests, not "the job." An ideal gift for any high school student, this personal workbook is also an expert resource for career counselors, teachers, and parents.
