Shows students how to improve skills

An ideal resource for students thinking about their future careers and for their teachers, guidance counselors, and parents, the revised Career Skills Library set provides practical advice on which skills are most in demand by employers and how to start building them now. The set details the competencies identified by the Department of Labor's SCANS as essential to solid job performance and explains how and why these skills make a difference. Each book focuses on a single skill or set of skills in the workplace and shows students how to improve and practice that skill while still in school.

New features for the revised set

This extensively revised and updated set covers the skills, traits, and attributes that are crucial to success in any field, including communication, problem solving, organization, and teamwork skills. Featuring a new volume on finding a job, the titles in this in-depth set now offer readers a true-or-false quiz in every chapter to test career skills as well as a new appendix with helpful Web sites. Special box features have been added with helpful exercises, quotations, useful facts, and statistics.

A valuable head start to success

The Career Skills Library not only prepares students for whatever career they choose in the future, it also provides them with a valuable head start to excel by giving them access to skills and techniques they can use to succeed in high school and college. These must-have volumes help students get on the right path to success at an age when it is easy to pick up skills and there is still plenty of time to practice them in school. Parents and educators can feel confident in directing their students to these volumes for reliable information on building essential career skills.
