Description

For students taking courses in career counseling.

 

A comprehensive survey of career development that emphasizes technology, cross-cultural issues, practical application, and the global economy.

 

Written by a leading expert in the field, this text covers all aspects of career counseling and career development in both the private and public sectors. The only book of its kind that emphasizes multicultural considerations and a global perspective, this text offers students the most complete and compelling look at the identification and use of occupational information and appraisal devices — in an array of environments and for all demographic groups. The newly revised and newly organized edition of Career Information, Career Counseling and Career Development focuses on technology in career development, free and low-cost career development strategies, and the impact of the recent recession on the job market.

Features

  • Contains excellent coverage of current theories, ensuring that students receive the most up-to-date information available.
  • The application of each theory is discussed in detail (Chapters 2 & 3), with each theory critiqued with regard to cultural and ethnic considerations.
  • Provides only essential references, making the material easier to read and synthesize.
  • Contains complete coverage of O*NET and the instruments than can be used to access this important career information database (Ch. 5).
  • Includes many insertions throughout text about the use of the Internet in career counseling.
  • Features NCDA membership categories and other discussion of credentialing career counselors (Ch. 4).

New to this Edition

  • A new emphasis on the global economy and how it influences the availability of jobs in the U. S. and elsewhere help readers to appreciate shifts in jobs to other countries as well as the effects of off-shoring on America’s job market.
  • A new chapter on program evaluation (Chapter 16) gives students an overview of two different approaches to evaluation: survey approaches and focus groups.
  • New learning tools including chapter objectives, student learning exercises, and end-of-chapter quizzes all help further facilitate student learning.
  • Reorganized content that mirrors the career development process helps students to better conceptualize the process.
  • Technology issues and uses have been infused throughout the entire text instead of appearing a stand alone chapter allowing students to realize the growing importance that technology has in most aspects of career development.
  • An increased emphasis on free and inexpensive strategies for delivering career development services will help students understand that career development services can exist in all agencies and schools.
  • Discussion of the impact of the recent recession and how the recession effected all facets of the job market and career development.
  • A new CACREP standards appendix that identifies the portions of the book that are applicable to CACREP standards benefits readers who are working on CACREP accreditation.
