The Career Adventure: Your Guide to Personal Assessment, Career Exploration, and Decision Making (4th edition)by Susan M. Johnston
Focused solidly on "doing" rather than on "explaining," this book gets right to the heart of career decision making: It will 1) walk you through the process of self-knowledge and self-discovery, 2) encourage you to believe in yourself and in your own ability to influence outcomes and achieve career goals, and 3) guide you in working with various job/career-search and development tools. This edition offers expanded use of electronic and internet resources, an update of Maslow's Hierarchy, and a new perspective on decision-making, as well as covers the topics of self-assessment, exploring the world of work, and organizing the job search.

If you enjoy a particular sport or activity, it's most likely that you are good at it. The same applies to work. If you enjoy your job you will be better motivated and, as a result, perform better. Finding out which is the right job for you, though, is not easy. Career, Aptitude and Selection Tests is designed to help you assess your strengths and weaknesses - in terms of aptitude, motivation, skills and personality - and match them to the type of job or career to which you would best be suited. Giving clear and practical guidance, Jim Barrett shows you how to understand: *what motivates you - what you want to do; *what specific aptitudes you have - what you do best; *your personality - how you do it. By working through the aptitude tests and detailed motivation and personality questionnaires, you can then use the 'Profile Matching' section to see what particular occupation your personal characteristics best match - whether it's bus driver or zoologist!
