Summary of the Book
Career choice is a serious business, but a book about it doesn???t have to be. Unlike typical career guides that provide dry information about colleges, courses, forms and fees - this book is a collection of delightfully informal personal accounts of 31 young professionals who are enjoying diverse careers of their choice. How did they make their career decisions? What is their job like? What are the challenges, frustrations, pleasures and rewards of the profession? Most importantly, is this profession suitable for you?
Compiled by Manoj & Archana Joshi (themselves parents of a teenager who will be making her own career decisions in the next few years), this book is a great ???career sampler??? to inspire young minds towards choosing a career of their true liking. Each ???career diary??? is accompanied with expert comments by veteran career counselor Dr. Shreeram Geet.
