From Classroom to Career: How to Network, Nail the Interview, and Navigate for Success by Shirley Morrison

The rules have changed; the traditional workplace is dead. To BOOM in employment today, the secret is to alter the approach, and From Classroom to Career will tell you how. Gen Z and Millennials are asking for this value-led guide as they embark on careers. Entertaining, personal, and relatable, the voice of the book is purposely casual, as if speaking in a café. It's a voice everyone trusts. Reasonable, logical, and concrete advice for today's how-to: how to write a business email; how to successfully land and then stand out in an interview, including in a virtual world; how to ask questions that can be adapted to any job/role; how to write a CV with examples. Inspiring, surprising, real-life stories show empathy for what the readers are likely going through, so they'll forget it's a business book. From Classroom to Career integrates the personal and career. This is in fact the real reality of every human being: we're so much more than careerists. It's impossible to thrive career-wise if you are not happy outside of work. People are happier when they have a balance, enabling them to achieve personally and professionally. By helping readers to discover their own values, this guide gets them to think about their own career and who they want to be. This is entirely unlike any other business book out there.

Major Decisions: College, Career, and the Case for the Humanities by Laurie Grobman & E. Michele Ramsey

A practical how-to guide for students and a powerful reminder of the value of a humanities education In recent decades, the humanities have struggled to justify themselves in the American university. The costs of attending a four-year college have exploded, resulting in intense pressure on students to major in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), business, and other pre-professional or "practical" majors that supposedly transmit more marketable skills than can be acquired from the humanities. But, as Laurie Grobman and E. Michele Ramsey argue, this vision of humanities majors idly pondering the meaning of life for four years is inaccurate. Major Decisions demonstrates how choosing a major in the humanities is a worthwhile investment in a global economy that is shifting in the direction of college graduates who think broadly, critically, and ethically. Indeed, the core skills and knowledge imparted by an education in the humanities--including facility with written and verbal communication, collaboration, problem-solving, technological literacy, ethics, leadership, and an understanding of the human impacts of globalization--are immensely useful to employers across a variety of sectors. Major Decisions serves as a deeply informative guide to students and parents--and provides a powerful reminder to employers and university administrators of the true value of an education in the humanities.
