Overview

Created specifically for career college students, this book is built around 10 Essential Cornerstones for success renowned by the foremost in career college instructors, administrators and students. Practical tools engage the career college student in topics that will help them open doors to success both personally and professionally. As with all books in the well-known Cornerstone franchise, you will find concrete applications, a conversational tone, and a motivational purpose.
  • COMPLETELY NEW chapter on Interpersonal Communication and Emotional Intelligence.
  • NEW Feature: Successful Decisions. Examples of real-life decisions and solutions that students are likely to face in a college career environment.
  • The "BIG WHY" written by the author and The "BIG WHY from Another Perspective" written by a current student in a career college about why the chapter is relevant.
  • Concluding chapter "Prosper: Preparing for Success in the World of Work and Beyond."

“As a Career Services Coordinator for more than five years, an instructor in Professional and Career Development, and a business owner, I have never seen a more comprehensive approach to training the student in the proper methodology for achieving his or her academic, professional, and private goals.”

“It is an exceptional text, well thought-out, relevant to the lives of today’s students, especially those who are working, working mothers, or just coming back to the classroom to update skills or retrain for a new career.”

--Edward M. Tucker, Lincoln College of Technology

“… the text seems to reflect current trends in the field. I think acknowledging past struggles of students and empowering them to approach their education with intentionality, rather than just “hoping” that it will be different, is reflected in the field of higher education.”

--Jean Fennema, Pima Medical Institute

“This book focuses on students being accountable for their own success–which is sorely lacking in most student success texts. It speaks in a common language that students of all abilities can relate to, which is very important in our market...My students are always engaged during this class because of the way the topics are covered. Most texts also do not focus on the nitty gritty of getting and keeping a job–which is absolutely essential to my students.”

--Kate Sawyer, Lincoln Educational

Meet the Author

Robert M. Sherfield, PH.D.

Robert Sherfield has been teaching public speaking, theatre, and student success and working with first-year orientation programs for more than 25 years. Currently, he is a professor at the College of Southern Nevada, teaching student success, professional communication, public speaking, and drama. He is also an adjunct faculty member at The Unversity of Nevada-Las Vegas in the William F. Harrah College of Hotel Administration, where he teaches classes in professional and career development.

Robb was named Educator of the Year at the College of Southern Nevada. He twice received the Distinguished Teacher of the Year Award from the University of South Carolina Union, and he has received numerous other awards and nominations for outstanding classroom instruction and advisement.

Robb's extensive work with student success programs includes experience with the design and implementation of these programs–including one program that was presented at the International Conference on the First-Year Experience in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. He has conducted faculty development keynotes and workshops at more than 250 institutions of higher education across America. He has spoken in 46 states and several countries.

In addition to his coauthorship of Cornerstone: Doors to Career Success, he has authored or coauthored Solving the Professional Development Puzzle: 101 Solutions for Career and Life Planning (Prentice Hall 2009); Cornerstone: Discovering Your Potential, Learning Actively, and Living Well (Prentice Hall, 2008); Roadways to Success (Prentice Hall, 2001); the trade book 365 Things I Learned in College (Allyn & Bacon, 1996); Capstone: Succeeding Beyond College (Prentice Hall, 2001); Case Studies for the First Year: An Odyssey into Critical Thinking and Problem Solving (Prentice Hall, 2004); The Everything Self-Esteem Book (Adams Media, 2004); and Cornerstone: Building on Your Best for Career Success (Prentice Hall, 2006).

Robb's interest in student success began with his own first year in college. Low SAT scores and a low high school ranking denied him entrance into college. With the help of a success program, Robb was granted entrance into college, and he went on to earn five college degrees, including a doctorate. He has always been interested in the social, academic, and cultural development of students, and he sees this book as his way to help students enter the world o work and establishing lasting, rewarding careers.

A nationally known motivational speaker, consultant and author, Pat has spoken in almost every state, has been invited to speak in several countries, and frequently keynotes national and regional conventions. She has presented her signature motivational keynote address, "Fly Like an Eagle," to tens of thousands of people, from Olympic athletes to corporate executives to high school students.

As the dean of her college, Dr. Moody led international trips to build relationships and establish joint research projects in hospitality. Under her direction, faculty members in her college began a landmark study of Chinese tourists.

Pat now travels the country delivering workshops, keynotes, and presentations on topics such as change, working in the new global community, student motivation, and emotional intelligence. She also serves as a personal coach for business executives.
