Overview

' John Arnold has written a book which will serve well any student or new practitioner in the area of career management, both in terms of explaining how thinking has developed, and in looking forward to the complexities of the future' - Career Path, Institute Personnel and Development

'This book has two purposes for education leaders. It provides understanding of the world of pupils will be moving into. More urgently, because it is not yet sufficiently recognised, it provides a framework for us to consider what is happening to teachers’ careers now’ - School Leadership

The book will appeal to several different audiences, particularly those taking human resource modules in MBA and other postgraduate management courses, undergraduates taking special modules in university business schools or psychology departments, and all practising human resource managers, particularly those concerned with career management and (in the UK) those taking the IPD option on career management. The book is not primarily a do-it-yourself career manual, but nevertheless contains much that will assist people to manage their own careers better.
