About the Author:

Margaret E. Pickard is an attorney, educator, and author. She is admitted to practice law in California, Montana, the U.S. District Court, Ninth Circuit, as well as the U.S. District Courts of Montana and the Northern District of California. She is currently a faculty member in the Continuing Education Division of Duke University and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Review:

I like it--it adds some flexibility to what can be taught in an already packed curriculum. This would allow job searching skills to be taught in a shorter period of time. The workbook approach allows the student to build up to a final product.
