How this book came to be narrated...

Why Suzie Vail decided to narrate this book.

I'm a professional voice talent with varied experience in the world of business. I'm also the mother of young children who are just reaching the age when they're noticing the wider world and what's involved in it.

In what I'm sure will seem like no time at all to me, my children will be facing high school and beginning to make choices about coursework, friends and activities that will affect their futures for years to come. Like all parents I wish I could do more to help them, especially with the kind of insider information and connections that mean so much when launching a career.

Most of my voice work involves commercials, marketing and training. When I decided to expand my professional focus to include audiobook narration, I was offered the opportunity to narrate Networking for the Career-Minded Student. Reading it, I realized that this was an approach that could benefit my children and their friends. I wish I'd had this information when I was a teenager, and I'm eager to share it with other young people and their parents.
