The College to Career Road Map:
A Four-Year Guide to Finding Your Path
by Terese Corey Blanck, Peter Vogt, and Judith Anderson

A map is a guide to unfamiliar twists and turns along unfamiliar routes. The fact that a map exists gives us reassurance that someone has been here, at this place, before—and has offered to share his/her wisdom and experiences, in detail, with those who come after. No one expects a newcomer to be magically familiar with the routes that are old hat for the locals. How, then, can we expect college students to somehow just figure out where they’re going in life and how to get there—especially when we know their paths will inevitably evolve with time, experience, and exposure to new ideas?

Like all of us, college students could use a reassuring, detailed map—The College to Career Road Map. The College to Career Road Map: A Four-Year Guide to Finding Your Path takes students through college year by year, spelling out the essential academic and experiential activities they should pursue to best prepare themselves for a satisfying, purposeful life after college. The book covers not only the what but also the usually overlooked (or ignored) why and how of each activity, helping students understand the complex bigger picture behind pinpointing their passions, their skills and abilities, and what matters most to them.

Any professional who works with college students can use The College to Career Road Map to guide students along the challenging journey to post-college success—and encourage parental support along the way with the parent version of the book.

The College to Career Road Map:
A Four-Year Guide to Coaching Your Student
by Terese Corey Blanck, Peter Vogt, and Judith Anderson

As today’s college students begin down the complex path toward life after college, their highly involved parents often struggle with the conflicting—yet understandable—feelings of wanting to be helpful on the one hand but not knowing how to be helpful on the other. What exactly should students be doing during college ... and why … and how? And what role can—or should—parents play in this process?

The ideal role is that of coach—knowledgeable advisor, trusted sounding board, and skilled teacher. College parents will learn how to become just that with The College to Career Road Map: A Four-Year Guide to Coaching Your Student.

Like the student version of The College to Career Road Map, this innovative parent version outlines the essential academic and experiential activities students should pursue during each of their years in college. But it’s more than a mere laundry list, for it also teaches parents how to cultivate critical thinking and independence in their students—so that the students themselves ultimately do the difficult but necessary work of finding a satisfying, successful path after college.
