Jell, John R.


There is a huge disconnect in our schools today resulting in frustration in the workforce. Educators evaluate the success of students via graduation percentage rates and student achievement on standardized test scores. Students judge how successful school was by how big their paychecks are when they graduate. A survey of people in the workforce released by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that the average person today will make at least five career changes. The #1 concern of the business community is training young people for work. The #1 concern of students is finding a good employment opportunity upon graduation. John Jell's must read book creates a bridge to close this gap. His book provides a springboard for more than just learning from books and shows students how to focus on their future by identifying their likes and dislikes, plus identify their strengths and weaknesses while still in school. This guide introduces students to the idea of workforce preparation by dispelling myths, giving facts, and providing exercises. Written in a student-friendly manner, From School To A Career, the 'General' curriculum addition to compliment Jell's So_You Want A Great Job When You Graduate, will: _ provide a roadmap to better prepare students for transition to the workforce _Jell, John R. is the author of 'From School to a Career A Student's Guide to Success in the Real World', published 2005 under ISBN 9781578862139 and ISBN 1578862132.
