Description

Dear Agent:There is a disconnectcurrently between college and career opportunities. My book is called College ManiaÂ, and it is subtitled ÂCongratulations DoctorÂ. It was written to show how colleges have failed to follow its mission statement of producing teachers and scholars, and to show how young adults can find meaningful and productive jobs without going to college. The works go into many different subjects including medicine, law, and history.The manuscript explores alternatives to college failing its graduates. The overwhelming student loan debt and why some college grads cannot find jobs are a key component of the book. The book tells about various kinds of bubbles that might occur like the housing bubble, and the college bubble.College Mania has chapters on job training, and gives examples of various fields of study that do not require a college degree. The book has a chapter on creating educational diversity for jobs in different fields. For example, a college grad could lead the criminal justice system directing original research, and the janitor could be cleaning the floor as an illiterate. The book examines the controversial issues of what to do with the common occurrence of dead end jobs for dropouts as well as graduates.There is not currently any direct competition for mywork. My manuscript includes some original research into college work skills, degree outcomes and careers. My book is 96,000 words, and 339 pages. I have found one book called the ÂAnt Tribe that goes into the fact that many people with a college degree are struggling for a job in China.(not available in English)I have a BA degree in History from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton. I have no published work experience. The book should interest high school studentsas well as college students, guidance counselors, employers of college graduates, and parents.In conclusion, the manuscript proposes alternatives to a college degree that could make better use ofeverybodyÂs time, money, and labor. This will allow the college to fulfill its mission of producing teachers, and scholars: most importantly to break the grip of saying ÂCongratulations DoctorÂ.Sincerely,Joshua Flapanshow more
