What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
“The handbook editors successfully organized, integrated, and illuminated a comprehensive body of knowledge and best practices such that the publication will potentially enhance the delivery of career advising services in higher education as well as inspire advisors to personally step up to the challenge of helping students make integrated and effective academic and career decisions…. It is an essential resource in the training of all new academic advisors as well as in the staff development of seasoned advisors. I will put it up with my top 10 career-advising resources as I provide institutional leadership toward the successful integration of academic and career advising that empowers students to reach their potential.”
Joan Pederson, (NACADA Journal)
