Publisher's Description

In today’s über-competitive climate, you can’t just wing it when you graduate and count on finding a great job (or a great job finding you). 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 twentysomethings 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. 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.

Editorial Reviews

"You won’t generally find ’How to choose a career’ among high school or college classes. Young people still have to figure it out on their own. This updated career guide for teenagers, a spinoff of the original What Color Is Your Parachute?, seeks to fill that gap in an easy-to-digest way."
—Associated Press’s Finance Bookshelf, 5/14/10

"If you’re ready to take ownership of who you are and how you live, this book will take you, step by step, through the process of creating the life you want financed by work you enjoy."  
—Penelope Trunk, author of Brazen Careerist
 
"Out of all the methods I have ever used to find a career that interests me, this book is undoubtedly the most comprehensive and informative of them all." 
—Chris Mitchelitis, high school senior
