Editorial Reviews

“The writing style will fit nicely with the expectation of my students. The text is written in a general conversational style, there are opportunities to make the content personal and relevant, and what examples I saw were appropriate and interesting.” --Lindsay Harris, Algonquin College   “The Self-Assessment tools are ready good and provide students with a view of themselves they didn’t have before.” --Dan Holbrook, Centennial College   “The checklists and Self-Quizzes are superlative and one of this text’s strengths. They immediately emphasize the SELF responsibility of one’s career. They make this textbook a participative learning experience without having to be at a computer.” --Beth Shewkenek, Saskatoon Business College   “ The content is excellent and follows a realistic representation of the job search process in today's business environment. Although the material and job search techniques are generic and not specific to any one business or industry, the skills are transferable to many careers.” --Anonymous
