NCDA is proud to release a brand new online complement to the print book, A Comprehensive Guide to Career Assessment (7th ed). This website is a dynamic database of assessment reviews, which will offer approximately two new reviews each month. Each review is supported by relevant literature sources and includes current test descriptions, quality markers, and ways to contact and access further information from assessment publishers or developers.
Over a dozen reviews are online and cover traditional standardized assessment (quantitative), and semi-structured or interview processes (qualitative), as well as open source career assessments and a research category, to keep abreast of emerging concepts and constructs.
In line with the comprehensive goal of the book and online companion, the website includes 14 new chapters offering perspectives on career assessment from diverse cultures and settings: Asia, Australia, Canada, Europe, Latin American, the Middle East, and South Africa; K-12 schools; higher education; business and workforce development; private practice; research and evaluation; public policy and advocacy; and the integration of career and mental health counseling.
This subscription serves as a companion to the foundational material released in the print book, although the two must be purchased separately. As seen in the print book, the foundational material on career assessment includes history, trends, test selection and administration, computerized assessment and multicultural issues. These six chapters appear only in the print book.
The intention of creating a worldwide resource for career assessment information and review is to benefit NCDA members and the profession, including counselors, researchers, graduate students, career practitioners, business and workforce personnel, student development specialists, independent practice, and more.
The editors, Drs. Kevin B. Stoltz and Susan R. Barclay, developed this multi-faceted resource as the quintessential source for career assessment now and in the future. With the incorporation of technology into this publication, NCDA can offer ongoing reviews and updates that will build a current accounting and a historical record of career assessment worldwide. This is truly a comprehensive work that will live up to its name, the NCDA name, and to our profession.
NCDA offers special pricing for graduate students and online previews for counselor educators. Contact Natalie Scrimsher at firstname.lastname@example.org for special ordering and preview information.Stock#: 915.5
Employer Relations and Recruitment:
An Essential Part of
Postsecondary Career Services
This monograph is intended for any career services provider seeking a guide for developing employer relations and recruitment services at a postsecondary institution. It serves to inform readers about the changing meaning of "placement" over the years and the role it currently plays in career services. It describes procedures, policies, staffing, technology, evaluation methods, and trends associated with employer relations and recruitment programs based in higher education settings. The monograph, while rich with detailed information, also provides a framework that invites career services staff to employ a "relationship based" approach to providing effective career services to students and employers that can be generalized to a diverse range of educational institutions. (Myrna P. Hoover, Janet G. Lenz, and Jeff Garis, 2013)
