A practical, straightforward approach to the competencies required of today’s professional career counselors.

This comprehensive, top-selling text presents theories, assessments, planning tools, resources, and technologies relevant to modern career development in a practical approach that shows theory and research in action. With four chapters devoted to career development in educational settings, it analyses the various aspects of career development interventions for the elementary, middle and high school, higher education, and community audiences, and provides strategies for implementing career counseling techniques and creating and designing career development programs. The new edition features a stronger emphasis on the elementary school level, up-to-date coverage of the use of technology in career counseling, including the use of social media for job seeking, and the addition of new case studies and practical assignments throughout.
