Who You Are Is What You Do is a funky and informative workbook, designed to help teenagers make good decisions when taking the sometimes scary step of entering life after school. Author Heather McAllister has drawn on her experience as a career coach to create an essential resource for schools, students and parents alike. Attractive and fun-to-use, Who You Are Is What You Do gets its readers asking the right questions about themselves.
