What You Like Really Matters in Career Hunts
Yes the book “What Color Is Your Parachute” has been around for a long time. This is an edition that brings the classic career exploration advice into the language of a teenager or young adult trying to figure out what they want to do with their future. The advice is sound; the exercises are direct and meaningful.
It is important that students and young adults have an idea of what they want to do with the rest of their life. You don’t have to know which job title you want to have, but you do need to know which of your strengths you want to use everyday. This will make not only your career much more enjoyable, but it will make your education more relevant and enjoyable as well.
Getting ideas about what you enjoy and what you really don’t like doing is an important start for your career hunt. Do you like to do public speaking, or is that a firm reason to cross a job off the list? Do you want to make things physically, or would you prefer electronic creation?
Nearly every like and dislike gives a hint to career options. The book will help you sort through those ideas. You will see concepts emerge that will help you target your research.
I recommend this book for every teenager and young adult still planning his or her career future. Even if you know what degree you want to study or what training you want after high school, this book helps you organize your thoughts. You will pick up tips for networking with people that have the types of jobs you want, and dozens of other helpful ideas.
