Summary

Summary

Focused solidly on doing rather than on explaining, this text gets right to the heart of career decision making: It 1) walks students through the process of self-knowledge and self-discovery, 2) encourages them to believe in themselves and in their own ability to influence outcomes and achieve their career goals, and 3) guides them in working with various job/career-search and development tools in progressively demanding tasks to make their goals become a reality.
