Required reading for recent grads
You Majored in What? Mapping Your Path from Chaos to Career by Katherine Brooks helps new grads formulate not just a decent response to that inevitable question, but a realistic career pathno matter the major. The author, a nationally recognized career coach, debunks standard linear thinking about college majors, and opens readers to a far wider world of exciting and appropriate professional opportunities. Her systematic method maps out insights, life experiences, academic histories and other clues using graphically appealing formulas and charts. Particular attention is paid to "unplanned events and emerging conditions" that can alter circumstances at any time. As patterns and themes emerge, readers conduct small experiments to discover what they truly enjoy, and then build strategies to find a profession to match. The book concludes with lessons in storytelling, résumé writing, and interviewing, which will, one hopes, make the next step inevitable: a rewarding new job.
