'Career Trek' is a practically-oriented textbook that speaks to students about the importance of finding career paths that match student passion and skills. The text takes students beyond their Bachelor’s degree showing them how to leverage that degree and achieve successful careers. Unlike most career texts that address only landing a job, Career Trek offers three chapters that help students to shine in their first year of employment and deal with challenging career issues while developing professionally. Also unique is the chapter on graduate programs and entrepreneurial career paths. Nielson writes in an informal, engaging style that will capture students’ interest and maintain it as they pursue their career. He employs Jon Krakauer’s account of ascending Mount Everest in Into Thin Air as the theme for Career Trek helping students to understand the challenges and thrills of their career journey.
