Professional Development Series Book 4 The Workplace: Chart Your Career 1 9780078298318 Developed by Dr. Joe Pace and incorporating the same material he has used to guide thousands of students and to train hundreds of instructors across North America, The Professional Development Series is designed to teach the personal skills that lead to college, job, and career success. The result? Confident, motivated students who have the goals and skills to succeed in your program and in their chosen careers. One day a student leaves school and has a job; twenty years later they look back and realize they have a career. How can students make sure that the career they choose is fulfilling and rewarding? How can they avoid or overcome the inevitable missteps – taking the wrong job, for example – and get their careers back on track? Book 4 offers guidance on planning a career and, more importantly, on developing, changing, and maintaining it. Each of the four books of the Series can stand-alone or be purchased in a discounted package with the other texts.
