San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 2, 2006
This month hundreds of thousands of students are graduating from U.S. universities and heading into the real world. While some are fortunate enough to have already landed their first job, most graduates are still struggling to choose a career that makes sense to them. With this new book from WetFeet, “Finding The Right Career Path,” students can coach themselves to find the best career match for their skills, talents, and personality style.
Experienced career coach and author, Mary Ann Bailey explores the four critical steps to choosing a career: self-assessment, exploration, evaluation and decision-making, and implementation. From helping readers consider their “dream job” to how to start a successful job search, this book uniquely addresses the needs of graduating college seniors through the use of interactive self-assessment tools.
According to author Mary Ann Bailey, “In this book, I’ve captured the process and techniques that we use in our one-on-one career coaching sessions, but in a way that students can actually use those same tools to coach themselves and uncover their true interests and skills.”
“Finding The Right Career Path” is published by WetFeet as part of their successful Insider Guide series, relied on by hundreds of thousands of job seekers. Since 1994, the more than sixty Insider Guide titles explore topics ranging from career planning, resume development, and interview preparation to in-depth information about specific industries, careers, and companies.
Steve Pollock, president of WetFeet, comments, “We’re excited to work with Mary Ann again as her style is engaging, and in a recent WetFeet Student survey, nearly half of all college graduates had not found a position, so this is an area where we want to help students get started on the best path.”
“Finding The Right Career Path” is currently available for sale on http://www.wetfeet.com and will be available at Amazon.com and in major book stores in late May. $21.95 retail price. ISBN 1-58207-554-9.
