What Color is Your Parachute? Edition for Teens

The first edition not for teens was very helpful to me as an adult. Interviewing is the most stressful thing in life other than taking the SATs and the GRE. Everyone needs to practice before going to an interview. I love how it breaks down every component for an interview.

The teen edition is more or less the same kind of thing except it targets teens. Because in this generation, toddlers are seen with ipads and iphones, playing away in restaurants and doctor offices. So this book has a chapter that deals with social media. Most importantly, it’s packed with the big-picture advice that will set you up to land the job that’s perfect for who you are—and who you want to be.

It pays to figure out your interests early, so you can decide what additional schooling—and tuition debt—makes sense for your chosen field. In What Color Is Your Parachute? For Teens, career authorities Carol Christen and Richard N. Bolles not only help you plan for these decisions, but also help you define the unique passions that will lead  you to your dream job. With new chapters on social media and sustainable jobs—along with all-new profiles of twenty-somethings who’ve found work in solar energy, magazine writing, and more—this new edition has all the nitty-gritty details you need to get started now.
