LANCASTER, Pa., Aug. 31, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- College to Career, The Student Guide to Career and Life Navigation, a new book by accomplished human resources professional and author, Mark A. Griffin, will be released on Amazon.com on August 31, 2015.
This year, more than 1.6 million students will graduate with a Bachelor's Degree, after dedicating themselves to years of study and investing tens of thousands of dollars into their education.
The identified trend is that these inspired students are keen to kick-start their careers, leaping blindly into the workplace and asking questions later. Unfortunately, the majority find themselves in jobs unrelated to their college major, feeling unfulfilled and demotivated. It's a downward spiral from this point.
The book will help readers to target the career ideally suited to their personality, set up practical, actionable steps through each stage of college and translate their education into a meaningful career.
Through his writing, Griffin speaks to students starting college, parents wanting to steer their children in the right direction and graduates seeking the right career path.
"This is not a self-help book, but rather, a guide to identifying and achieving the path that is right for the student – financially, professionally and personally."
"The sooner you start planning and vision casting, the closer you will be to beginning a career filled with passion and purpose. This book is about finding your unique voice, recognizing your strengths, developing goals and achieving success," Mr. Griffin said.
In addition to Griffin's expert advice, College to Career features insightful interviews from leaders of internationally recognized organizations including the Dallas Cowboys, James Madison University, Jabra, PepsiCo and HOPE International.
The recommended retail price for College to Career on Amazon.com is $49.99.
