Comments by Recognized Authorities

ACT's four 'What Works in Student Retention' studies consistently conclude that a first year orientation course is a major contributor to student retention from the first to second year. Additional research indicates that goal commitment, motivation and self-management are nearly as important to student success in college as academic ability. While most orientation texts focus on acculturation and surviving the first year, attention to self-management and goal-setting is woefully lacking. The Five Goal College Plan fills that void. It is an orientation text unlike any others -- providing students with a blueprint, replete with tools and templates to manage their paths through college and into successful careers. I recommend it highly!

Dr. Mulligan understands the connection between career planning, a college education and having a successful career journey. He is realistic, strategic, and tactical in his approach. Dr. Mulligan identifies five goals and creates tasks that need to be completed to meet each goal. If college students meet the five goals, they can truly say their college education served as a career and life launching pad for them. The five goals include:

• Developing and Executing a Strategic Plan to Graduate on Your Time Line with Little Debt
• Assessing Yourself as a Self Manager/Leader and Developing a Growth Plan - Three Assessments that Measure One as a Self Manager and Leader are in the Book
• Assessing Yourself as a Career Manager and Developing a Growth Plan - A Career Management Competency Survey is in Book for Students to Take and Review Results
• Assessing Yourself and the World of Work and Choosing a Tentative Career Field and College Major - A Number of Assessments are in This Section
• Creating and Executing a Plan to be Employed At College Graduation-Tasks to Becoming Employed are Listed and Discussed

Another unique feature in the book includes the Family Partnership Expectation Pac, a document that helps parents and the college student identify what they can expect from each other during the college days. If colleges and universities don't use this book with their students, parents should purchase a copy and review it with their son or daughter. With the cost of higher education rising, it is important students set relevant goals and meet them so they graduate with a good job.
