Back cover copy

This book is designed to help its users develop the skills and attitudes needed to successfully complete an educational program: search for, find, and win the job they want; transition smoothly from school to work; and build a long, happy, and successful working life--all with a user-friendly and visually appealing design. Coverage of important topics includes developing and maintaining a positive self image, managing time, budgeting and organizing finances, and tracking down the resources available at school. A focus on self-awareness teaches readers: how to get to know themselves better so that they understand what kinds of jobs might best suit their unique talents and qualities, where to find job listings, who can locate opportunities, and how to present themselves in the best possible light on a resume as well as in an interview, and how to handle both failure and success. Additional topics discuss workplace communication with bosses, co-workers, clients, and customers; qualities and skills that employers look for in their employees; rights on the job; critical thinking at work; improving and maintaining physical and mental health; motivation, and more. For anyone interested in career development and success--and especially for community college and vocational school students.show more
