By Katherine Brooks
#8401 As revolutionary as What Color Is Your Parachute?, this career guide is for a new generation of job seekers, from one of America’s top college career counselors.
With the job market in flux, young people face the question of “What are you going to do with that major?”
In this indispensable guide, Dr. Katharine Brooks provides a road map for 20-somethings, replacing obsolete thinking that “major = career,” and instead using positive psychology, mapping techniques, and experimental wanderings to help job seekers reframe their skills.
The book provides effective strategies to help readers mine their academic and life experiences for new insights into landing jobs with the best employers, and finding alternatives when the situation calls for a Plan B.
You Majored in What? offers a practical and proven approach to reframing experiences, discovering overlooked opportunities, and finding a true calling, regardless of your undergraduate major or the state of the job market.
