Recommends it for: Educators
This book is a great resource for Student Affairs practitioners and those who teach career development to students. It offers great tips, as well as a skill building system for students to follow. I highly recommend this for anyone looking to build their "soft skills".
Steven
The best part of Coplin's advice is that he acknowledges that GPAs and test scores are only a small part of what employers want from people. The skills he covers, which include work ethic, teamwork, and good communication, are far more valuable to a person than good grades.

I read this book because a professor of mine wrote it, but I read it AFTER I graduated so its information was a little late. Don't bother unless you are studying under Coplin, because if you do, and read this, he will love you!!

Using it in my classes to emphasize what should be focused on by a college student, who feels as though there is no practical words forthcoming in college classes.
