For courses in Career Development, Career Placement, Employment/Job Search and Career Counseling.

Exceptionally readable, well-illustrated, and current, this unique presentation of career development techniques and skills emphasizes the necessity of communication and interpersonal skills. "Designing" a successful career requires self-awareness, effective communication, and strong interpersonal skills combined with the practical "nuts and bolts" of goal achievement throughout an entire career. This book has all of it. This explanation/suggestion-packed text also has a variety of thought-provoking questions/thinking-doing activities. It inspires and guides students to think creatively and critically rather than just engage in or accept a one-way job hunt.
