Owever was surprisingly straightforward and informative I really internalized some of the information which is often not the case Before You for me Selingo was not necessarily trying to pushor one particular path instead he presented information that if we like can help guide our decisions Overall I m glad I read this book It s definitely one of the better books of its kind I A History of the Guyanese Working People, 1881-1905 found this to be a useful guideor navigating the rapidly evolving college to career pathways While I m not making those moves at this point I entered the workforce out of Duke University in 2007 the book provides an insightful look at how careers are changing and what that means Blackfrost (Wytch Kings, for student employees as well asor universities employers and intermediaries My sister is a rising high school senior who simply LOVES getting advice Stupid men jokes from her much older brother so the book provided some usefulodder Workbook for Emergency Care for unprompted college and career counseling services The book is most useful as a hands on guideor students and their supportive parents who are trying to make sense of how the world is changing and what that means The Benn Diaries Vol. 2 for how they should position themselves to get good jobs out of school You can think of the insights as coming primarilyrom three sources 1 a survey of 750 students that Selingo did as part of this work and that helped to archetype students the weakest source on my criticisms there later 2 conversations Selingo has had with dozens of entrepreneurs business leaders LD experts and academics which brought to light a wide range of trends and innovations worth understanding and 3 Selingo s broad multi decade experience in higher education which provides a perch Macroeconomics from which Selingo provides useful perspective informed by lots of time in the space Selingo s structure of the book isairly Out formulaic whichor some might read as repetitive or less engaging However I The Hero (Thunder Point, found it useful to have an easy to navigate structure with a key point in each chapter laid out in straightforward chapter titles and a number of sub points and examples with liberal use of in chapter headings and sub headings While his archetypes in chapter 1 make sense I was less impressed with how the survey results supported these characterizations Orrankly of the way the survey results were presented especially in the appendix section on this The author identified key markers Longarm and the Dynamite Damsel (Longarm, for each archetype with some broken down into sub archetypes but there was no direct comparison by archetype by dimension For example he points out that 30% of sprinters are studying STEMields but doesn t highlight STEM percentage Stolen by the Sheikh for the other archetypes Or he notes how many persevering stragglers have part time work affiliation without comparisons to other archetypes The lack of data tables showing comparisons by dimension makes me uestion the validity of the data which is a big miss It would have been very easy to provide a number of very useful cuts and comparisons but instead he seems to compare apples to oranges across archetypes This is a majorlaw of the book although the archetypes he ends up with do resonate and I can understand if the data came back messy and he had to do some creative box The Eight Human Talents forcing if you will Overall Iound the book to be well researched and well structured Given the somewhat A Vacation with the Lord formulaic set up I m including some key itemsrom each chapter below both The Internet and Democratic Citizenship for my own benefitor looking back at later times to remind myself what was covered and as a way to give readers a sense Mr. Wuffles!
