This volume, a joint project of the Educational Resources Information Center/Counseling and Student Services Clearinghouse (ERIC/CASS) and the National Career Development Association (NCDA), investigates how career counsellors in the US can effectively help their clientele to adapt to a world of work undergoing rapid transformation.
