I got the book for my son who wanted to work this summer but he didn't know where to begin or how. Now he can't stop talking about the book and the course. He's a job search machine.

How Today's Young People use Social Captial to Secure Jobs, Internships and Economic Opportunities.
Jobs are a vital part of young people’s growth and development. From providing extra spending money to teaching the skills required to succeed in the world of work, job programs provide it all. Unfortunately, many young people do not know how to maximize their job experiences. In Workforce and Summer Job Success, national youth workforce development expert, Edward DeJesus reveals what every young person needs to know to get a job and succeed in it. DeJesus provides a timely guide to help young people understand the value of a job and connect to social capital assets that can help them make employment a lifelong reality. After completing this book, no young person will never have to look for a job again.

About the Author
As the nation’s leading social capital success coach and expert my aim is to create a world where no person is disconnected from opportunities for success and advancement. That’s why I’m super- passionate about social capital and its power to transform lives and bank accounts.
My thirty-five years of experience helping build future economic opportunities has prepared me to help you connect to the opportunities that you never knew exist. Through research, education and direct experience I have uncovered the truth about career success that is not taught in school and is missed by most "motivational" speakers. I present the case that you have the seeds to set up the structures that will make a difference in your future and through social capital building, I show you how to make these seeds grow.
My mission is to increase the social capital literacy of one million youth and adults by 2025.
