CHICAGO, May 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Polaris K-12 became the first school to use the newly released book, A Degree Is Not Enough!: 8 Smart Things You Need To Do In College To Jump Start Your Career and Finances by Katherine Berntzen.
A Degree Is Not Enough! examines eight things college students should do in college to become desirable job candidates at graduation.
Polaris K-12 is an innovative, public school based in Anchorage, Alaska, where students compete for admission through a lottery program. A Degree Is Not Enough! was used in its intensive course, College Boot Camp, this Spring.
Berntzen says, "My books are all about what I would have wanted to know in high school and college, before starting out on my own. When I tell a classroom or auditorium full of students this, it seems to put them at ease. I bring the employer's perspective to benefit young adults. I am not a parent telling them what to do. I am a consultant telling them how it works in the real world."
