9780131149601: Career by Design: Communicating Your Way to Success (3rd Edition)

For courses in Career Development, Career Placement, Employment/Job Search and Career Counseling. Exceptionally readable, well-illustrated, and current, the third edition of 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. Up-to-date information and a research-based approach make this a must-have text.

Features of the book include:
  • Key advice from experts and "real-life" examples.
  • Updated technology, including electronic resumes, online resources, and websites.
