This interactive worktext covers the workplace readiness skills identified by the SCANS project and the National Health Care Skill Standards. It allows learners to gain an interactive assessment of current work skills and assists them in developing achievable goals to optimize future success in the work world. This second edition maintains a writing style that helps to personally connect the material to the individual learner's life experience. While easy to read, the book still challenges the learner to think and apply information toward their personal and professional enhancement.
