about

Focused solidly on “doing” rather than on “explaining,” this text gets right to the heart of career decision making: It walks students through the process of self-knowledge and self-discovery; encourages them to believe in themselves and in their own ability to influence outcomes and achieve their career goals; and guides them in working with various job-/career-search and development tools in progressively demanding tasks to make their goals become reality.
