The four main elements are: Parent/Student Partnership Achieving Academic & Career Success Treating College as a 4-year Job Search Hearing to be Heard That’s just a brief outline; this book isn’t the typical self-help mumbo-jumbo that leaves you thinking, “That’s nice, but what do I do?” The author offers many concrete examples for all of these concepts and more, in a very readable, relatable format. I found this book to be particularly helpful because it is full of hands-on solutions. How do we talk to our almost-adult children about college and life goals? Do we lecture them, or listen to them? What skills do employers want to see, and how do students acquire them? The days of cruising through college and expecting job offers upon graduation are gone. This book offers practical advice for the reality of today’s job market. For example, when starting college, students should look ahead four years and work on building a portfolio of attributes and experiences that will help launch them into a career. Mr. Holland has a wealth of experience in human resources, job-search counseling, networking, and consulting, and this book proves it by offering valuable and pragmatic guidance. I highly recommend it for parents, students, grandparents, or anyone interested in helping someone build a sound career path.
