Editorial Reviews

"This manuscript presents a strong stepwise progression through an explicit career planning process -- through current and changing trends in the world of work, occupational exploration and information gathering strategies, career-related self study methods, goal setting and decision-making processes, and reality testing and evaluation approaches. It contains a wealth of useful tools, exercises, resources, and information summaries presented in a clear, engaging, and coherent fashion."
"I think the manuscript is unique in the specific topics it covers, and it covers them very well. There are various texts and workbooks on career development, but none that do as good a job. Two major strengths of the manuscript are that it is totally up to date, and the exercises make it a participative book rather than just another textbook. It is well-written, thorough, and engaging."
