As graduation approaches, many college students are filled with trepidation about the changes that lie ahead. Graduation, they fear, can mean losing friends, having to find the right job, moving to an unfamiliar city, and learning to shop and cook for oneself for the first time. Any change, even one a person is looking forward to, involves some upheaval and adjustment, and planning ahead can help with the transition.Carol Weinberg, whose book "The Complete Handbook for College Women" was described by one reviewer as "extra-ordinarily user-friendly, sensitive, insightful, frank, and invaluable," here provides a roadmap designed to ease the stress and anxiety that can accompany the transition from college to the heralded "real world."Each chapter includes steps students can begin to take before and during senior year to prepare for the changes that lie ahead. This practical volume begins by focusing on the transition process itself. To assist young adults in coping with major changes, Weinberg offers guided exercises designed to help readers explore their own patterns of transition and to provide an organized structure for focusing on their priorities and making future plans. The book also explores the ins and outs of the job/career track and the pros and cons of graduate and professional school in depth. Finally, it supplies tangible information on the more practical issues encountered after college graduation: --financial management (tax tips, buying a car, selecting a bank, employment benefits, etc.)--health care and wellness (health insurance, selecting a primary care provider)--housing (what to look for in a lease, rental options, roommates, etc.)--relocation and community involvement--food shopping and cooking--making new friends and keeping in touch with old ones--and much, much more...A bridge designed to help students over the post-graduation chasm, The Transition Guide for College Juniors and Seniors combines the advice of professionals with short anecdotes from recent graduates, making this a readable, accessible, useful guide for all those nearing the end of their college years.
