The second section of the book describes four career change programs in business and industry. Section 3 discusses three programs in educational institutions. Three programs for career change in government agencies are presented in section 4. The fifth section discusses two programs which are organized by professional associations. The final section of the book presents a short discussion of other career change programs throughout the United States and briefly describes two current career change research projects.
