Carol Christen is a Master Teacher of the effective and internationally known techniques found in the best-selling career book, "What Color is Your Parachute? (by Richard Nelson Bolles). In the research that is the basis for “What Color Is Your Parachute? For Teens”, she and co-author Richard Bolles were surprised to find that typically consumer savvy teens (as well as their parents) don’t know how to shop for post-high school career preparation. In this session, Carol will present some of her research as to how the oldest Millenniels (also known as Gen Y) are faring as they transition into the workforce, answer questions about her book and share her thirty years of experience doing career planning with teens and young adults.


1. What a majority of Gen M think is most important about work.
2. Why career planning could have saved young workers from making costly mistakes.
3. How to market your career services to Gen X parents.

Since 1979, Carol Christen has helped clients around the world determine their career goals and build strategies to achieve them. Carol graduated Phi Beta Kappa from UCLA with a burning ambition to someday teach a college course about something completely practical. At age 28, she got her chance. The dean of Management at Sonoma State University, the late Jeff Doubt, Ph.D., hired her to teach career planning and job search. As a lecturer, students repeatedly voted her the best teacher in the department. In the interim, Carol journeyed from being a secondary school teacher to a career development professional. She has taught career planning and job hunting to many audiences—teens and young adults, college students, adults, and career professionals. She still gets a thrill when a client realizes that both life and work can be shaped for a better fit.
