In addition, over 30% of students said that they did not start planning for a career until their junior or senior year in college. This is not ok! Are you ready for you?

Planning allows you to prepare while setting goals and expectations. It provides you with a focus and push for getting things accomplished.This book is designed to cater to young students and help them align their education and future with their true interests. Based on how you answer four simple questions, you will be able to start planning for your unlimited potential.
