Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Yate is a former personnel director and the author of the popular "Knock 'Em Dead" series of job-search books. While his previous titles focused on getting and keeping jobs, his latest deals with career identification and selection. He takes the reader through a process of identifying personal preferences, resulting in a "professional competency profile" that is generated by scoring oneself as low, average, or high on such variables as basic functional skills, thinking skills, and people skillsmeasures that are of course subject to the vagaries of the reader's self-perception. The second section contains job descriptions and industry analyses that are well written and thorough but far from exhaustivea list of further readings for each entry would have been a welcome addition. Still, although many self-assessment factors are not considered and many occupations are absent, this work provides a theoretically sound, reader-friendly approach to career decision-making. Used in conjunction with other career materials and resources, it is a valuable addition to the career self-help literature.Alan J. Farber, Northern Illinois Univ., DeKalb
