The book will explain the concepts behind each and offer practical suggestions for how parents can best support their emerging professional children.
Description
As parents we of course want what is best for our children. We did not raise them for more than two decades just to see them wallow in jobs rather than professions or lost on tracks that will not make them happy, secure or successful. All parents share a common desire to give their children the best possible start in life. We pay for music lessons, sports teams and tutors because we know such investments yield a return throughout the child’s life. The college to career transition is the same. Parents can and should give their college graduate students a leg up in the process of identifying and excelling in a career of choice and fit. It is ironic that we spend eighteen years preparing for the four that follow and yet relegate the following forty-five years to chance and serendipity. The question of the hour, then, is how parents may best provide this assistance in a manner that is at best useful and at a minimum not harmful? The purpose of this book is to illustrate in detail the skills, attitudes, and disciplines that emerging professionals will need to identify, secure and excel in the career that best fits their talents, preferences and ambitions. It is written to address an audience of parents in the belief that those parents, motivated by love and concern, are best in position to support their son or daughter’s accession into professional life. Not Done Yet will explain that today’s emerging professionals need four elements to be successful in their quest for career contentedness. These are confidence, curriculum, connections and coaching. The book will explain the concepts behind each and offer practical suggestions for how parents can best support their emerging professional children.
