    A NOTE TO PARENTS OF TEENS

    Virginia Byrd, CEO Career Balance, Encinitas, California says---- This book answers a query that I often hear from adults who are on a career search and using the original book by Richard Bolles, 'Why didn't I have this kind of help when I was young? I could have avoided mistakes that I made in choosing work that was not right for me.' To those who are parents, I strongly recommend that they offer it to their teens NOW! It will appeal to them because they like to assert their independence and make decisions for themselves. The book provides easy steps to take in a process long established as the best way to find the right career, as well as tools, techniques, examples and resources on the Internet Teens can even use it to enhabce their on-line profile and share it with their friends.

    Excellent for High School Age

    This book is a stepped down version of the What Color Series that has been around for years. Has excellent information and brings some reality and focus to kids who are still in high school (best age group would be 14-15). I bought it for a young college age child and so some of it is past being useful (high school choices, college choice) but has some good information that is more applicable to this age group than the full blown book for adults. If there were just a way to get them to read it!

    For serious teens only

    I returned it. My daughter glanced through it and said "No, thank you!" Perhaps a more ambitious teen would appreciate this book.
