Test Drive Your Future, High School Student and Grad Edition: Your Step by Step Guide to Choosing the Perfect Career
by Beth and Jim Hood
Most students are never taught how to choose their career path, and as a result, end up in college majors and careers that are not a good fit for them. Up to 70% of college graduates are not even working in a field related to their majors! With the asking price of a bachelor’s degree at an in-state public college hovering around $64,000 ($157,000 for a private school), young people today can’t afford to choose their majors or careers on a whim. You wouldn’t buy a CAR without taking it for a test drive, so why would you choose your future CAREER without test driving it?
Test Drive Your Future walks you through a step-by-step process of uncovering, testing, and choosing the perfect career using proven resources from top college and career planning organizations. The pages are packed with real life advice and inspiring stories gathered from dozens of interviews with professionals who love their careers.
