Roadtrip Nation

For students who are searching for a rewarding career path, there may not be a more entertaining or valuable resource than the PBS TV series Roadtrip Nation.

The show, currently in its fifth season, follows a small group of students as they crisscross the country in a bright green RV, interviewing successful professionals who chose careers based on passion rather than profitability. These interviews, along with the incidental adventures of the students, create a compelling story that is equally informative, inspirational and entertaining. It is the perfect resource for any student struggling to answer that age-old question, "What are you going to do with your life?"

Roadtrip Nation airs on PBS stations around the country. Show episodes and information can be found online at http://www.roadtripnation.com or http://www.pbs.org/wnet/roadtripnation.
