The most important subject they will study in school is themselves.
Andover, NJ (PRWEB) March 31, 2013
NJ-based CoTria, a productivity training company, announced the release of Hired ‘Right’ Out of College, a book that helps students discover and uncover the major and career paths that best suit their natural gifts and abilities.
College and college-bound students do not need to dread choosing a major and career path. When done correctly, Miller believes, college experiences can be focused, fun and rewarding. In order to make good decisions about their futures, students must have accurate information about themselves. To acquire that information, they must be busy with a purpose.
“How to be busy with a purpose is what Hired ‘Right’ is all about,” says Miller. “Most students tell you that they are busy, but my question is: Are they busy with a purpose? Are the activities that are occupying their days helping them learn about themselves? The most important subject they will study in school is themselves. They must learn what their natural abilities, aptitudes and skills are, and those can only be accurately assessed if they are pursing them through experiences.”
Hired ‘Right’ is easy to read. Each section is followed by practical advice for putting Miller’s self-discovery process into practice. Students who enter the discovery process will find that they are more engaged in school. The book encourages them to seek out activities that stretch them and confirm their skills, aptitudes and talents.
The payoff for those who are busy with a purpose is twofold. First, students will avoid the frustrating process of bouncing around majors, hoping to find the one that is right for them. Students who change majors are at risk of losing credit, time and resources. Second, students who follow the steps in Hired ‘Right’ will find that the experiences and activities they have been involved in contribute to a more robust resume on paper and in real life. That resume will help them be hired ‘right’ out of college.
The book is available as a soft cover and e-book. It is available at most online suppliers and at CoTria.com. For more interviewing advice from Garrett, watch this TV interview.
