About the Author:

Frank Burtnett is a counseling and counselor education veteran who writes for individuals who are experiencing career and education transitions. His books offer current and concise information and pragmatic guidance and are packed with strategies about how to navigate the transitions that lead to career success and satisfaction.

Review:

This resource examines the development encounters that people experience across the life span. It begins with a comprehensive examination of the process and why these phrases must be understood for career satisfaction and success to be achieved. A meticulous treatment of 25 things members of the workforce 'do wrong' or 'don't do' in pursuit of career ambitions is also included. Conducting an effective job search, dealing with job loss and prospering in the workplace are among the other subjects. Throughout, the author sets life-work balance as a paramount goal and outlines strategies for achieving this illusive objective. (Counseling Today)

If you want to know where your job search or career path went wrong, author Frank Burtnett is ready to tell you. A counseling professional whose background includes student services and admissions work, Burtnett writes as if he is addressing students directly – not in the 'I'm your pal' way that we've come to associate with this genre, but in the 'You'd better listen because this is your life' tone that I wish more people would use. . . .[I]t would be a good bet for parents or mentors, who can glean good advice to offer for perplexing problems. (St. Paul Pioneer Press)

Career Errors runs the gamut of challenges people face throughout their career development. Frank Burtnett offers sound counsel to readers across the life-span about how to address these matters and ultimately achieve life-work balance. (Pat Turner, CEO and founder, Employment Marketplace)

Frank Burtnett calls upon his experiences as a professional counselor and counselor educator to provide the advice, guidance, and nuances of career development issues that must be addressed if personal satisfaction is to be achieved. His “straight talk” approach is candid and refreshing. (Richard Yep, certified association executive; executive director of the American Counseling Association)

Career Errors is packed with the things we “do wrong” or “fail to do” in the pursuit of career success. Frank Burtnett’s conversational style of writing is like having a counselor in the room. Everyone picking up this book will see themselves on its pages. (William E. Cox, president and CEO of Diverse Issues in Higher Education magazine)

The author's wisdom is priceless...few have seen so much with such clarity, insight and hope. (Rich Feller, Ph.D., past president of the National Career Development Association and Professor and University Distinguished Teaching Scholar at Colorado State University)
