I believe that every one of Hess' examples, his writing assignments, his advice from his own experience is very "workable and practical" for the vocational student. Nothing he has written is out of reach or too far fetched. The goals for each chapter are obtainable and reasonable. --Mark W. Forquer, BS, Ed. Advanced Career Training, Jacksonville, FL
I think Hess's material is right up there with the best of them. It's short, sweet and to the point. He makes his material obtainable and personal, as if he were writing the guide just for you. His title is what grabbed us as a school "Career Success, Right here, Right now!" It is also the only career guidebook that I have seen as a vocational instructor that has a CD-ROM for the hardest and scariest part of trying to get a job: the interview. Bravo Peter Hess!--Mark W. Forquer, BS, Ed. Advanced Career Training, Jacksonville, FL
I would recommend this text as the one to use in the Externship course. I think it is exactly the right amount of information. I think it is clear and simple.
Overall this product is a very user friendly, well-conceived and informative book covering in a very logical way all aspects of career planning. The organization of the book is excellent. Three greatest strengths are in its topics addressed, way in which the material is conceived and presented, and the workbook pages that create an interactive program.
