    Career Recovery: Creating Hopeful Careers in Difficult Times provides readers with powerful strategies they can use to create hope and manage their careers throughout their lifetimes. The book introduces readers to the hope-action theory, an empowering approach that highlights the connection between hope, academic engagement, student retention, job search success, career goal clarity, and cultivating a meaningful career path.

    In Section I, the text introduces the essentials of hope-action theory. The chapters illuminate the challenges of effective career self-management in a post-pandemic world and the importance of hope in career planning. Section II examines the crucial process of engaging in self-reflection to develop self-clarity. Readers uncover their unique passions, skills, personal styles, and values. Section III highlights the need for support in career and educational planning. It teaches readers how to move from self-exploration to seeking support and fostering future opportunities. The final section focuses on implementing key decisions and transforming possibilities into realities.

    Career Recovery is an energizing resource that helps readers discover and channel hope to support the development and management of their chosen career paths.
