A Guide Careers in Community Development.
Paul C. Brophy and Alice Shabecoff Foreward by Neal Pence and Carol Steinbach
It would be impossible to produce a better guide for anyone interested in community development. Not only is the information well-organized and succinct, it also covers every aspect imaginable on this topic. There's a self-assessment quiz to help determine whether a career in community development would be a good match for your skills and interests; there are also comprehensive job descriptions, interviews with people who have found success and fulfillment in the field, information about career paths and educational opportunities, and inspiring stories of communities that have been helped by community developers. The appendices include details on national, regional, and international organizations to use as resources, specifics about colleges and universities offering undergraduate and graduate programs, and places to search for your first job. This book is simply a must-read, not only for those launching a first career, but also for anyone who may be searching for a new career that requires commitment, energy, and a strong desire to institute change.
