Summary

Offering concise coverage of essential job-hunting and career strategies, this flexible, how-to book can supplement any business course or serve as the foundation of a career development class. The Fourth Edition features increased technology coverage and new strategies for long-term career success. Exercises develop students' skills in goal setting, interviewing, assessing values, and writing both resumes and cover letters.

  • New! Learning Objectives at the beginning of each chapter preview important concepts, helping students to focus on key points.
  • New! Strategies in Action boxes appear at the beginning of each chapter, featuring vignettes that cover real-world applications. Students read about a recent college graduate who must decide between joining the family business or exploring other career options, a stay-at-home mom reentering the workforce, and how a personality test can help a job-seeker pinpoint suitable career choices.
  • New! Updated exercises and hands-on activities help students to immediately apply what they have learned, including how to identify personality strengths and skills, check their resume savvy, and complete a sample job application.
  • New! An extensively revised textbook web site contains useful career-related links, additional job searching strategies, sample documents (including resumes and cover letters), and templates.
