Choice Review

Professionals can no longer expect to work for the same employer, or even in the same career, for their entire working lives. This directory provides sources of information to help deal with job changes whether or not they are self-initiated, identifying 195 books, Web sites, audiotapes, CD-ROMS, and other software. These resources are organized in six broad categories: career exploration and research; career transitions (either for advancement or job loss); using the Internet to find the right job and career; the job search process, including resume writing and salary negotiations; and resources of interest to specific groups of job seekers such as minorities, women, the disabled, PhDs. Each chapter opens with a brief introductory essay followed by full-page reviews of resources. The resources are described and critically reviewed, those rated highest appearing first. The annotations are well written and enlightening. A good starting point for students beginning to look for their first jobs or anyone planning a career change; useful in career collections. C. E.
