Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) January 26, 2012
Career Key, http://www.careerkey.org, has just updated its most popular e-Book, “What Job is Best for Me? How to make a decision you won’t regret.” The 2012 edition has been expanded to 97 pages. It guides people through their career decision using methods, information, and techniques drawn from the latest research and career counseling practices. When paired with Career Key’s valid career test and unique tools and resources -- career seekers match their strongest Holland personality types to occupations and follow step-by-step advice for choosing the right one.
“What Job is Best for Me?” author, Dr. Lawrence K. Jones, NCC walks readers through the critical four steps for choosing the right career:
1. Consider all the Alternatives,
2. Weigh the Consequences of each,
3. Search for Information about each choice, and
4. Make detailed Plans.
The new edition includes a section, “Choosing a College Major or Training Program” that enables readers to tap into the latest research on personality-major match, using Career Key’s unique resources. Choosing a career usually means choosing a program of study. Research shows that the closer individuals’ interests and personality match what they study, the better grades they get and the sooner they graduate.
