While the American workplace affords many and varied career options, the process of determining what to do with one's life remains a significant challenge. The Bound-for-Career Guidebook views career identification, selection, entry, and progression as part of a larger developmental process-the career development process. This book addresses the incredible importance that change plays in education and career. What we need to know and the skills required to perform our work roles are affected dramatically by change, and all workforce members must possess the ability to learn and adapt. Empowered students and workers are better able to guide themselves through their personal career journeys. The Bound-for-Career Guidebook, with its information and exercises, will point you in the direction of opportunities and options that are realistic, desirable, and achievable.

According to Burtnett (president, Education Now, and adjunct, counselor education, Marymount Univ.), one should always be prepared to make appropriate education and career-related decisions by anticipating iterative universal phases in the 'career development process.' In this comprehensive, systematic, and readable book, he presents a process for developing a successful career. It includes advice and strategies for exploring and obtaining information on careers and the workplace; searching and interviewing for jobs; and continuing to advance throughout one's career. Each chapter ends with a relevant fact/myth, one or more FAQs, and application exercises. The text is peppered with online resources and references to helpful people and tools, e.g., lists, tips, citations, a career development model, sample resumes and job search letters, social networking sites, and 'electronic job boards.' The appendix, organized alphabetically according to career topics, lists career- and education-related resources. Burtnett, who has extensive professional experience in counseling, teaching, and speaking, is also the author of Bound-for-College Guidebook (2009).
