Turning Points is a practical resource that covers self-assessment, career exploration, job search, and goal-setting.

 

It has been revised to provide updated  advice on uncovering job and internship leads, creating resumes and cover letters, and interviewing effectively. Networking skills are emphasized, and the value of college internships is highlighted. Effective goal-setting techniques are introduced. Educational decisions are presented as a crucial dimension of career development. To increase student awareness of why career opportunities are now in constant flux, examples of globalization and rapid technological innovation are interwoven throughout the text. There is a stronger focus on helping both traditional college-age and adult students present their skills effectively.

From the Back Cover:

Turning Points is a practical resource that covers self-assessment, career exploration,  job search, and goal-setting.  Student profiles illustrate each topic along the way.

 

New features include:

  • Coverage of networking has been significantly expanded. (Chapters 4, 5, 7, 8 & 13).
  • An engaging new chapter on goal-setting has been added. (Chapter 12).
  • A new emphasis on identifying personal strengths and skills prepares students for effective interviews. (Chapters 3, 9 & 10).
  • Students learn and remember main ideas via new Mind Maps and Key Points sections (Every Chapter).
  • Supplemental Support added - The Instructor's Manual contains the text's major activities that can be posted on a course management system, assignments appropriate for ePortfolios, PowerPoints that summarize each chapter, and a test bank of multiple-choice and short-answer questions.

Revised hallmarks of the book as follows:

  • A structured, four-step approach (ASAP: Ask–Search–Analyze–Plan) for gathering information about career options has been refined. (Chapters 1, 4 & 5).
  • The text is written in a clear, warm, and personal style, using diverse case examples of students making decisions, poetry, references to famous people, charts, and quotes. (Chapters 6 & 14).
  • Students see how key educational choices (e.g., college major, transfer, and graduate school) are an integral part of the career decision-making process. (Chapters 5 & 7).
