For the first time, Adele Scheele has defined hidden nontechnical skills that all successful people use in advancing their careers. Through extensive case studies and intensive interviews, she reveals exactly how crucial these skills are and how accessible they are to everyone. 

We learn how our institutions teach us to hold back, rely on authority and look for the right answers instead of encouraging us to be proactive and engaged. She demonstrates how we can present, position and connect ourselves for success. Adele Scheele's evergreen skills and critical career competences show us that we can realize our potential and reach our highest goals.


"Adele Scheele has written the most important book in career development in the last ten years. Skills For Success will be to career development what Richard Bolles book What Color Is Your Parachute is to job hunting. Her six critical career competences will become a standard reference point for future discussions of career developments. - Harvard University.

“A refreshing and very human approach to success.” - Publishers Weekly

Strategies for Students, Educators and Parents

Only a fraction of students actually know how to use college as a stepping-stone for educational exploration and social connection. Most students are keenly disappointed when the expected transformation from college to career does not automatically happen. They do not know that they have to make it happen through their own engagement. Packed with practical and accessible advice, Scheele's approach provides critical strategies to the burgeoning number of students—whether they are children of advantaged parents or children of immigrants, high school students anticipating their college career, or adult women re-entering college after years of working or childrearing. All students are seeking the American Dream, hoping that the secret to success will be included with their diplomas. Launch Your Career in College provides a guide to maximizing the return on their educational investment.
