Impact Publications, a subsidiary of Development Concepts Incorporated, is a Virginia-based publishing, training, and consulting firm. Founded in 1982 by Ron Krannich, Ph.D., with a goal of producing quality career resources, today we publish over 100 books on a variety of career, business, and travel subjects. We also distribute hundreds of related books, DVDs, and software.

Our career and business titles deal with major employment and communication skills, issues, and audiences - assessing skills, networking, writing resumes, negotiating salary, giving presentations, recruiting on the Internet, and assisting young people, students, executives, women, minorities, people with disabilities and learning disorders, ex-offenders, military personnel, career changers, and others interested in business, government, nonprofit, and international jobs.

Representing over 30 authors, our books constitute one of the most important bodies of work defining today's career field. Several of our titles are widely used in college and university courses and in corporate and government career transition programs. We are especially noted for publishing several popular career series: Haldane's Best, Cool Careers for Girls, CareerSavvy, Dynamite Job Search Skills, Military Transition, Executive Coaching, and Click and Easy.

Impact Publications is more than a traditional book publisher. We help shape and direct today's dynamic career field. Representing more than 100 publishers and producers, we distribute over 5,400 career products through our catalogs and online bookstore.

As one of the premier publishers and distributors of career and employment resources, we are the supermarket for books, DVDs, audios, software, training programs, correspondence courses, and other related products dealing with employment, jobs, and careers.

Individuals and professionals - from elementary schools to colleges and from HR professionals and the military to libraries and prisons - rely on us for identifying resource trends and for offering innovative career products to assist their audiences.

In 1987 Impact Publications inaugurated a second major specialty line which has now become the innovative Impact Guides travel series (The Treasures and Pleasures of...Best of the Best), which focuses on quality shopping and traveling around the world. Designed for discerning travel-shoppers, current volumes include the Caribbean, Hong Kong, China, India, Australia, Thailand and Myanmar, Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia, Singapore and Bali, Rio and Sao Paulo, Italy, France, Egypt, Mexico, Turkey, and Vietnam and Cambodia. In addition, we publish several companion volumes to assist travelers with many aspects of travel, from health and safety to travel planning on the Internet.

In 2015 Impact Publications formed a partnership with Ned Rollo, author, trainer, and founder (1979) of Open Inc. (Offender Preparation & Education Network, Inc.), to publish and distribute Ned Rollo's and Open Inc.'s resources.
