Jell...offers practical advice for how to develop good job skills while in college. He discusses, among other aspects of job training, time management, the importance of both formal and informal learning, what makes for relevant work experience in a future career field, and networking. Although Jell attended college and relates much of his university career in his book, high school students who choose not to go to a four-year college can still benefit from this book because it addresses work skills that can be learned in trade school or even high school. The professional language is easy for teens to understand and sets a good example of how a job seeker or serious college student should speak and write. Interactive questions and activities appear at the end of each chapter. This resource is recommended for high school libraries and public libraries with a strong career section. * VOYA *
The book's strength is its plucky, scrappy, boot-strapping spirit. It is hard not to like Jell's earnest and sincere interest in helping young people. Jell offers himself as the savvy, caring, straight-talking big brother you wish you had or a personal guidance counselor in your hands. The tone is incessantly upbeat and empowering. * Journal Of College Student Development *
