Put College to Work

How to Use College to the Fullest to Discover Your Strengths and Find a Job You Love Before You Graduate

by Kat Clowes, M.B.A.

College today is not preparing students for the modern job market—at a time when young people can expect to change careers five times or more, students are graduating with insufficient and obsolete job skills. The old rules for succeeding in college just don’t work anymore.

Put College to Work is a new kind of college guide, written by a Millennial for Millennials and designed for today’s world of uncertain employment, rapid career changes, and high student loan debt. The author knows first-hand what works and what doesn’t in today’s economy, both from her own experience as a student and her career as a college planning consultant. At a time when traditional college planning is failing to prepare students for working world, Put College to Work is a supremely practical guide to start building your career plan, your business contacts, and your job prospects.

Put College to Work shows how to identify your strengths, find the right career field and major to pursue, leverage your skills, and create your own opportunities. You’ll learn how to network to employers through your university’s career center, alumni association, and major donors, plus the industry and research connections of your professors.

Put College to Work presents a step-by-step plan to use the resources available to you in college (the resources you’re already paying for!) to enhance your education with practical experience, make connections with employers, market yourself as a dynamic and creative employee—and land a job before you graduate.

Put College to Work is the new rule book to how college really works today that will empower you to take action now to build your education, your career plan, your business contacts, and your job prospects.

 

About the Author: Kat Clowes figured out college the hard way. Having been a college student without a clue, Clowes spent ten years after graduation learning how she could have used her college resources to launch her career. After earning an M.B.A. and building a successful executive career, Clowes is now an independent educational consultant helping students use their time in college to gain meaningful employment after graduation.

The Edge

The Pressured Past and Precarious Future
of California’s Coast
by Kim Steinhardt and Gary Griggs
Publication Date: October 1, 2017

The Pacific coast is the most iconic region of California and one of the most fascinating and rapidly changing places in the world. Densely populated, urbanized and industrialized — and also home to complex, fragile ecosystems — the coast is the place where humanity and nature coexist in a precarious balance that is never perfectly stable.

 
The Edge: The Pressured Past and Precarious Future of California’s Coast  is a dramatic snapshot of the California coast’s past, present and probable future in a time of climate change and expanding human activity.

 
Written by two marine experts who grew up on the coast, The Edge  is both a celebration of the coast’s natural and cultural uniqueness and a warning of the many complex changes that threaten that uniqueness.

 
As ocean levels rise, coastal communities are starting to erode, and entire neighborhoods have been lost to the sea. Coastal ecosystems and wildlife that were already stressed by human settlement now face new dangers. The competing impacts of climate change, housing and commercial growth, commercial fisheries, oil drilling and production, and environmental advocacy all combine to define the future of the region.

 
The Edge  examines the current state of the coast’s natural and social environments, gives the historical causes for the coast’s present endangerment and offers informed projections on possible scenarios of the coast’s future.

 
A masterful and sweeping synthesis of environmental and social science, The Edge  presents a comprehensive portrait of the history, people, communities, industries, ecology and wildlife of the California coast.

 
Audience: Readers interested in environmental issues, marine wildlife, climate change and California history.

 

About the Authors: A widely recognized marine wildlife photographer, former administrative law judge, and a long-time conservation advocate, Kim Steinhardt delivers popular lectures and photographic programs on coastal conservation and ocean stewardship issues for aquariums and marine centers, universities, state parks and other audiences. Gary Griggs has written or co-authored nine books about the coast and coastal issues both in California and globally. As a Distinguished Professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences at the University of California at Santa Cruz, he is known for his expertise in oceanography and coastal geology. He serves as the director of the Institute of Marine Sciences at UC Santa Cruz.

A Reference for Law Enforcement Officers and Motor Vehicle Inspectors

from Noise Free America: A Coalition to Promote Quiet

Take a look INSIDE THE BOOK here!

FIGHT EXCESSIVE MOTORCYLE NOISE!

Excessive noise is a major public health issue. High noise levels are associated with hearing loss, heart disease, sleep deprivation, chronic fatigue, ringing of the ears, and aggressive behavior. Loud noise also damages communities, reduces property values, and denies individuals the right to peacefully enjoy their own home and property.

One of the major sources of excessive and unnecessary noise is from motorcycles, automobiles, and light trucks equipped with modified exhaust systems. By definition, a modified exhaust is not of the type installed at the time of manufacture, does not meet the manufacturer’s specifications, does not comply with manufacturing regulatory standards, and is the root cause of excessively loud vehicles.

Guide to Modified Exhaust Systems includes numerous photographs to make it easy to visually identify this illegal equipment.

This slim, portable manual should be of great interest to law enforcement officials, motor vehicle inspectors, prosecutors, and legislators, as well as all citizens who desire peace and quiet.

America’s favorite sex therapist, analyzes ancient myth and its relevance to 21st century relationships in her new book Myths of Love: Echoes of Greek and Roman Mythology in the Modern Romantic Imagination. For the ancient Greeks and Romans, love was sweet, but it was also irrational, cruel, and often deadly. Faced with the terrible paradox of love, classical civistories of classic archetypes such as Narcissus, Helen of Troy, and Venus and Adonis.

Dr. Ruth and classical scholar Jerome E. Singerman insightfully examine the underlying psychology of the ancient myths and explain why their universal appeal has shaped the imagination of Western civilization for millennia. Myths of Love traces how these myths have endured in literature and art across the centuries and how they still influence how we think about sex and relationships today.

Surveying a vast range of Greek and Roman literature from Homer to Ovid, Myths of Love retells and reconsiders the full gamut of human sexual experience, from the tenderest expressions of married love to the savage, self-destructive passions of narcissism and jealousy. Myths of Love is a delightful introduction to classical mythology, showing how the ancients grappled with modern dilemmas such as gender identity, female sexual pleasure, and intellectual equality between the sexes.

A stimulating blend of art, science, ancient religion, and the passions and contradictions of the human heart, Myths of Love is a smart and sexy revisit to the roots of Western culture’s eternal fascination with love.

Subtitle: 21 Steps to the Clear Prose  Publishers and Agents Crave

Most writers toil their whole lives without ever getting published. The reason? Foggy writing — writing that’s full of unnecessary, misused, and overused words. Foggy writing drives editors crazy, and makes publishers and agents reject manuscripts at first glance. Veteran editor Don McNair lays out an easy-to-follow, systematic method for clearing up foggy writing and producing sparkling copy that attracts readers, agents, editors, and sales in his new book Editor-Proof Your Writing: 21 Steps to the Clear Prose Publishers and Agents Crave.

In his more than 40 years as a professional editor and writing instructor, McNair found that most writers make the same mistakes over and over again, and nearly all of these mistakes can be corrected simply by removing specific words. In Editor-Proof Your Writing, McNair presents his classroom-proven, systematic method for rooting out foggy words and phrases, producing clear, vigorous and powerful prose.

In just 21 steps, Editor-Proof Your Writing teaches how to edit weak verb forms, strip away author intrusions, ban redundancies, eliminate meaningless phrases, correct passive-voice sentences, slash misused and overused words, and fix other writing mistakes.

Editor-Proof Your Writing doesn’t present theory; it shows how to apply knowledge. McNair asks readers to use the first chapter of their manuscripts as a practice text. Each chapter introduces a step to defog writing and then asks the reader to try it out on his or her own work.

A superb addition to any writer’s toolkit, Editor-Proof Your Writing won’t just make you a clearer and more grammatical writer; it will make you a better writer — more expressive, more entertaining and more likely to sell your work.
