Overview

Firmly focused on today's career realities and economy - with sufficient breadth to help students choose, change, or confirm career choices and encourage growth for all ages, backgrounds, and circumstances.

The Career Fitness Program is a top to bottom renovation, reaffirming, recasting, refocusing, and reframing this best-seller to revitalize content, graphics, photos, and layout to address the changing needs of students. It is user-friendly, easy to read, and suitable for both two- and four-year college students. It goes beyond facts and figures by offering critical questions that help students focus on, 'What's in it for them', to discover their best career fit. The organization follows the standard sequence of the decision-making process and career search process - Personal Assessment, The World of Work, and The Job Search - which enables use in short term courses or workshops while still giving students a comprehensive text for reference, and is easily customizable.

    Good book but Nook Study isn't

    I HATE that I am tethered to my laptop if I need to read a text book. I did not research Nook Study, but do not recommend it until it supports Nook and tablet devices.....Chegg's does. This is irritating and I really do not understand why Nook/B&N are so behind on this technology.
    Recommendation, Book has really good information and is helpful to me, but the e-version on Nook Study leaves much to be desired. Just order a used hard copy and write in it....
