Overview

Career Information, Career Counseling, and Career Development is a comprehensive, up-to-date text written by a leading expert in the field.

This new edition contains a stronger emphasis on technology and on cross-cultural issues, and has an increased emphasis on application. As in previous editions career development theory, career information, career counseling practice, and career development programming are all covered in extensive detail. The text carefully describes the process of finding and securing jobs in an electronic era and presents students with the trends that are shaping the workplace today–and those that will continue to influence their careers over the next decade. However, this edition has a decided emphasis on multicultural career counseling. Also chapter on schools has been totally rewritten to correspond to the ASCA National Model.
