About the Author:

Scott Weighart was a Senior Coordinator of Cooperative Education on the faculty of Northeastern University. He has been worked with co-op students and employers from 1995-2011. Author of Find Your First Professional Job: A Guide for Co-ops, Interns and Full-Time Job Seekers, Weighart has appeared on network television as an interviewing expert and delivered workshops on co-op topics and the millennial generation at local and national conferences.

Review:

One of Northeastern University's outstanding co-op professionals has written a guidebook that will excite and stimulate any young college student aspiring to learn what it takes to succeed in today's workplace. Through true stories concerning actual young workers, Weighart demonstrates that combination of values and everyday performance necessary to achieve both success and personal fulfillment... By far, this is the best book of its type that I have ever read. --John A. Curry, President Emeritus, Northeastern University

Unfortunately I had to learn many of the lessons taught in this book the hard way. I only wish I had the opportunity to read this book before I started working in the "real world"... Reading this book and gaining the wisdom it offers puts you on the steady track to a successful career, no matter where your career or careers may take you. --Jennifer Merrill, IT Change Management, State Street Global Advisors

Educators from any field would find this to be a most useful text in helping to groom their own students in an effort to make them ready to compete. Any young professional who is able to grasp the concepts in this book will have a large advantage over his or her peers. --Guy Doyon, IT Site Services Leader, Procter & Gamble - Gillette
