While we didn't have a chance to use this book yet, I have read the book and it has given me some great ideas for my children. So far, only my soon to be 10th grade son has chosen a career. We had already talked about the possibility of an internship, but didn't know how to do it. This book will be useful if he decides he would like to intern before going to college.
