COLLEGE-TO-CAREER

"Roberta and Joan have provided the single-most critical guidance for our 20-something son as he transitioned from college to his career as a filmmaker. Faced with so many ways into the business, they showed him how to pinpoint the path best suited to his singular talents, ambitions and character. With patience and unwavering - but realistic - support, they have helped him to define his goals and to develop the precise skills he needs to reach them."

When the time comes to leave college and join the workforce, young adults must cope with another moment of huge transition in their lives.  In addition to re-orienting themselves to the pace and rules of the "real" world, they must navigate the unique challenges of getting a job in the modern American workplace.
