Your Career Planner was designed with an APP in mind – it is a tool, it is a self-contained program, and it is user friendly. This text is meant to provide you information and give you ways in which to put that information to use.
Completely redesigned in a new 11th edition, Your Career Planner guides students and professionals through the process of finding a satisfying career that fits their individual personality and talents. It also develops job search skills and provides creative ways for people to promote themselves and their talents in the job market.
Your Career Planner features:
Aha! Moments – record key points and discoveries that are critical to the development of a realistic career plan.
APP Actions – assessments, activities, experiences, and assignments help the reader learn information about themselves, careers, and the job market.
Press Pause – designed to get you to react to what you’ve just read and make a self-discovery.
Tips – the TIP icons throughout are nuggets of information which elaborate on a point or provide insights for further research.
