"As the mother of two college age children, I have sat through numerous college counseling sessions at the high school and university level. As a professional, I see the successful results of those who have prepared for a career. Berntzen captures the advice of counselors and business professionals and provides a road map to 'jump start' a strong future." --Lydia Jacobs-Horton, Director, Global Business Services, Procter & Gamble
“A must-have map for students and educators alike. Often the simple questions are the ones that go unanswered but Berntzen zeros in on what’s important and delivers guidance on multiple levels. Readers will appreciate the definitions to help clarify often mysterious terms like 'co-op' and '401K' and feel empowered to develop a budget to track personal finances and avoid credit card pitfalls. Much more than a how to book … it’s a why and how you should (do it) book. ‘A Degree Is Not Enough’ was amazing and very easy to understand and apply.” --Diane H. Kozak, Director, Career Services, University of Alaska Anchorage
"…highly readable new book… Every college student… should take advantage of the sound advice given by Ms. Berntzen… She makes college students aware of the reasons they are in college and why grades, work experience and a 'clean' financial lifestyle are important. All this information and more including writing a good resume are given to readers in a quick easy style… An ounce of prevention and some good straight talk… make this book a must read for those who want to make the most from their education and have a prosperous life. My advice - read the book, don’t take chances.” --Brad Berger, author of “Aim High! 101 Tips for Teens”
"Katherine Berntzen's very timely book should be required reading for any college student with plans for the future. Berntzen offers readers critical advice that can serve as a foundation for the development of a powerful personal brand. Written in a clear and straighforward manner, 'A Degree is Not Enough' guides students from choosing the right college, to managing one's online presence. In an increasingly competitive job market and a social media world where every tweet and status update can mean the difference between getting hired or fired, parents and students would greatly benefit from reading this book cover to cover." --Harrison Monarth, author of "Executive Presence" and "360 Degrees of Influence"
