For Career Development, Job Search, Career and Life Planning Courses.
Hired! is a practical, life-career planning guide designed to reach a variety of audiences. It is a resource that can be used in life-career decision making courses in any setting. Unlike other textbooks, Hired! focuses on helping students develop an ongoing, flexible portfolio of information about themselves and work in order to prepare them for satisfying and productive lives in an ever-changing world. The exercises and writing activities encourage students to take a proactive role in creating their futures, motivating them to become personally responsible for their life and to become an active participant in its process. This third edition examines the changing nature of work–including trends in the marketplace and a turbulent post 9/11 world–and enables students to actively explore how to thrive in these fluid and dynamic environments.
