    Summary: 
    Career Errors: Straight Talk about the Steps and Missteps of Career Development examines the career development encounters that people experience across their life-span. The book begins with a comprehensive examination of the career development process and why these eight phases must be understood in order for career satisfaction and success to be achieved. This analysis is followed by a meticulous treatment of 27 things active members of the workforce "do wrong" or "don't do" in pursuit of their career ambitions. Conducting an effective job search, dealing with job loss or termination, and how best to prosper in the workplace, are among the subjects included. Throughout the book, the author sets life-work balance as a paramount goal and outlines strategies about how this illusive objective can be achieved. Career Errors is the next best thing to having a professional career counselor or recruiter in the room. While written for the individual experiencing the various life and work activities, this book is also of significant value to counselors, search and staffing professionals, educators, and others playing important roles in these transitions. -- Provided by publisher.
