Washington, DC : Regnery Publishing, a division of Salem Media Group, [2017]
174 pages ; 24 cm
To get the most out of your college education, you need to choose your classes wisely -- and increasingly, that means choosing STEM. Today's job seekers should have at least a basic understanding of trigonometry and other science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects more than 1.3 million job openings in math and computer-related fields by 2022. The purpose of this book is not to push you into a STEM career. It is simply to provide you with information and perspective, as well as a few questions that, if answered honestly, will help you plot out an educational and career pathway that will help you achieve your dreams.

Evola, Alley, 1971- author.
x, 227 pages ; 24 cm.
Includes index.
"Many children, from the time they are old enough to be attracted to a siren and flashing lights, dream of becoming a police officer. As a retired police officer herself, Alley Evola looks at the daily ins and outs of the job of a police officer. Through recruitment, life at the academy, patrol, and eventually promotion, she provides a helpful understanding of what you can really expect. She also looks at current issues, including race and gender, and how these have shaped certain expectations from the public that a police officer needs to be prepared for when working in this field. When you're young and dreaming, you don't think about the process it will take to become a police officer. The many challenges and issues you will face in the field are not evident until after the police academy. [This book] is for everyone who secretly wishes they were a police officer or is pursuing their dream in the hope of transforming it into reality." -- Back cover.

When you had to blindly scour the web for generic job postings? When picking a major meant picking a life-long career path? But career trajectories aren't scripted and linear anymore. Moreover, people don't discover and apply for jobs the same way, and employers don't find and evaluate applicants the same way either. So why do so many career books on the shelves still offer advice tailored to the old way? In this definitive playbook to the ever-changing modern workplace, Kathryn Minshew and Alexandra Cavoulacos, the co-founders of popular career website, show how to play the game by the New Rules. Through quick exercises and structured tips, you will learn: ·The New Rules for finding the right path: Sift through, and narrow today's ever-growing menu of job and career options, using the simple step-by-step Muse Method. ·The New Rules for landing the perfect job: Build your personal brand, and communicate exactly how you can contribute and why your experience is valuable in a way that is sure to get the attention of your dream employer. Then ace every step of the interview process, from getting a foot in the door to negotiating your offer. · The New Rules for growing and advancing in your career: Mastering first impressions, the art of communication, networking, managing up and other "soft" skills - and make it obvious that whatever level you're at, you're ready to move ahead. Whether you are starting out in your career, looking to advance, navigating a mid-career shift, or anywhere in between, this is the book you need to thrive in the New World of Work"-- Provided by publisher.
