Developed by Dr. Joe Pace and incorporating the same material he has used to guide thousands of students and to train hundreds of instructors across North America, The Professional Development Series is designed to teach the personal skills that lead to college, job, and career success. The result? Confident, motivated students who have the goals and skills to succeed in your program and in their chosen careers. Book One is an orientation to the world of work. In it students consider the occupations that are most likely to have job openings in the coming years, how to prepare themselves to fill these openings, and what the workplace environment is like in the 21st-century. Professional business protocol, professional presence, and a customer-first attitude are also explored and discussed. Each of the four books of the Series can stand-alone or be purchased in a discounted package with the other texts.
