Gale Announces Career Transitions – a Complete Guide to All Aspects of Career Change

Farmington Hills, Mich., July 10, 2009 – At a time when the need to re-evaluate, alter or develop careers is greater than ever, Gale, part of Cengage Learning, today announced a new electronic resource offering a comprehensive guide to career change.

Career Transitions
is a complete, guided, self-paced application that walks the individual through the process — taking stock of the current situation, assessing strengths and interests, exploring new opportunities, improving chances of getting a job and finally taking the plunge and pursuing the next opportunity. Workers are guided by clear and concise information about career paths, industries, economies and companies – organized around simple-to-navigate portals that combine overviews with statistical information and Web tools to help make well-planned career choices.

Career Transitions is a one-stop resource for people going through career change,” said David Forman, Gale’s publisher for business products.  “Over the past year the number of unemployed in the United States has increased by over 5 million people.  The introduction of Career Transitions comes at a time when people need help making life-changing career choices.”

Some librarians report being overwhelmed with requests for materials to assist users who are making job-related decisions.  Career Transitions encapsulates the entire job search process, allowing public library users and the librarians assisting them to find answers whether they are dealing with job loss, re-training needs or looking for new career paths.
