The author of a new book to help children decide what they want to be when they grow up will launch next week.
Robert Shewchuk is the literary mind behind Careers For Kids — How To Help Your Kids Choose A Career.
The book was written to inform, advise and teach Canadian parents how to help their children find real job security, uncover their kids’ career and life potential, save as much as $25,000 in wasted tuition fees, and keep their kids from wasting their talents in low-wage jobs.
“If you are a parent, you should be concerned about what awaits your children when they leave the security of the high school system,” Shewchuk said.
Shewchuk has dedicated the last 15 years working in career and educational programs within the Government of Alberta, University of Calgary and the Calgary Board of Education.
“Graduates all across Canada are walking right into an unacceptable rate of unemployment/underemployment while literally hundreds of thousands of jobs go unfilled in Canada.”
Careers For Kids will launch on Wednesday, September 4 at 7 p.m. at McNally Robinson Booksellers Grant Park.
