Phyllis Zimbler Millerabout this book: While getting into a college or post-high school program that interests you may seem to ensure that you have reached your goal, there are many potholes along the path to adulthood.
In writing this book, I drew on the experiences of my own two children along with the experiences of other children I coached in order to help young adults steer through the obstacles waiting to snag their best efforts.
One important area of discussion is internships -- how unpaid and paid internships can help give young people a good "taste" of what a particular career path may entail.
Here are some of the topics under internships:
• What is all this emphasis on internships?
• What exactly do we mean by internships?
• Where can you find internships?
• What is an example of brainstorming about an internship?
• How can you go about getting an internship?
• What about brainstorming internships for other possible career choices?
• What can you learn from a "menial" job?
• When should you ask for a recommendation?
• When should you messenger a handwritten note rather than mail it?
• What is the big deal about good manners?
• What if someone verbally attacks you?
• Do you know how to professionally answer the phone at work?
And, of course, there are also exercises in this book to help young adults prepare for their futures.
