From the Back Cover:

Exceptionally readable, well illustrated, and current, this unique presentation of career development techniques and skills incorporates both prerequisites for "designing" a successful career: interpersonal aspects—a healthy self-awareness and effective communication— and the "nuts and bolts" practicalities of pursuing career goals. This explanation/suggestion-packed text includes a variety of thought-provoking questions and 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. This comprehensive text also moves beyond the job search and covers advancing your career, changing careers, promoting positive relationships at work, and handling career challenges.
