I wrote this book to help people plan their career. There are many people who do not receive advice on career counseling. Many people spend time and money going to college only to find out that their degree is not in a high demand in the job market. We are influenced by our environment and advice we receive from others. As a child living in a tough working class city I received little career counseling. My father asked me when I was 8 years old what I wanted to do when I grew up. My reply was I did not know, he told me you have 10 years to figure it out, when you are 18 you are a man and you will be responsible for earning your living. Although my father’s approach was cold it let me know I had to figure out what I was going to do. It would have been a lot easier with help.
When the high school year started teachers would ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I surveyed jobs available in my environment and I narrowed it down to two jobs I thought I would be interested in. I informed my teachers of my career options which at the time were I wanted to be in the mob or drive a truck. Neither was a career I selected after graduating high school but my point is I had no guidance. My hope with this book is to get people to do some soul searching and research to decide what they will do with a major portion of their lives. We spend an average of 40 hours a week in work. It is important we select a career that will first meet our survival needs and then reach our self-actualization needs.
College tuition is costly so making a degree selection is very important. You want to find a job you will find interesting, provides sufficient income, and there is a high demand. Most college adviser are not career counselors, their job is to inform you what is required to earn a college degree. It is your job to research the best career fit base on available jobs, salaries, your talents, and your interests.
