Offering insight readers won't get in class, on the Internet, or from their parents, expert author Peter Vogt guides college students through the process of career preparation.

An epilogue offers advice on getting the most out of a campus career counselor, and an appendix suggests helpful resources for further research or career exploration.

  • What Are You Good At? Ask Someone Else!
  • You Can Make a Career Out of Almost Anything
  • Career Decision-Making Traps to Avoid
  • Money, Status, and Power Aren't the Only Forms of Pay
  • Experience Isn't Optional; It's Essential
  • Don't Take Your Technology Skills for Granted
  • Introverts Can Network Too
  • "Out-research" Your Competitors, Win the Job.
