More About This Textbook


The field of career counseling and career development is changing rapidly with the advent of technology, the growing popularity of offshore operations, and the uncertainly of the economy. The new tenth edition of Career Information, Career Counseling and Career Development not only explains, analyzes, and confronts these issues but also gives readers the information, tools, and practical strategies they need to successfully navigate this new and diverse world of career information.

The new tenth edition of this unique text comes updated with a number of new learning tools, including student exercises end-of-chapter quizzes, and chapter overviews. In addition, the newly revised edition of Career Information, Career Counseling and Career Development spends more time with the most current career development issues, including global job searches, offshore industries, the impact of technology on career counseling, and the recent recession’s impact on the job market.
