I read that 47% of Americans can't come up with $2,000 within the next 30 days without selling some of their possessions. It's bad out there. Shana has just one more year of school and not many jobs waiting when she's done, so to get her brain in gear (and since the helicopter parent thing doesn't seem to be waning), a couple of weeks ago I piled the following library books on her bed:

You've got an education, now go get a life
The girl's guide to kicking your career into gear
What flavor is your personality?
Careers and occupations: looking to the future
Career GPS: strategies for women navigating the new corporate landscape
Green careers for dummies
What color is your parachute for teens

I got the "due soon" email from the library today, went to Shana's room and saw the books all neatly stacked in the corner looking lonely and a bit dusty.

I may need to bring the helicopter in a little lower.

Here's a funny essay that started the whole job worry thing for me last year.
Your New College Graduate: A Parent's Guide
