Originally Reviewed for Young Adult Books Central guide is a laudable, wholly comprehensive resource for any young person considering the direction of their education and future employmentThinking about your future career is exciting, but it can also be daunting You need to pick which subjects to focus on in high school, make choices about college, and think about the interests and talents you have and which you would like to pursue It is best to approach choosing a career as a process rather than a single decisionAnd with that advice, the book proceeds to offer a color coded and simplistically illustrated springboard for that process The introduction uses introspective questions to ease you into the selection mindset At first the base imagery may seem busy, but with a bit of browsing the structure proves a consistent layout on a two page spread dedicated to each career option Complete with concise description, entry qualifications, skills guide, salary scales for both entry level and senior positions along with a list of closely related professions readers are given the most critical and to the point information in an approachable, easily digested manner The 400 jobs listed range the entire spectrum in terms of educational requirements While this reviewer could only personally vet a handful of careers in this book, I did take the time to present it to a number of different people all of whom agreed the section dedicated to their particular specialty was accurate and properly informative Though it s by no means exhaustive, this handbook could prove tremendously useful to young adults seeking to narrow down their most fitting, practical, and potentially stable job options The pay scale indicator was perhaps overly vague, but that should only encourage further personal research I sincerely wish I d had a guide like this to flip through back when I felt the confounding pressure of settling on a major.If there s a teen in your life who seems lost in the vocational selection maze, this book could be just the kind of map they need. There always seems to be a demand for career books for teens, and this is a really nice, one volume comprehensive guide Although nicely designed with lots of white space and graphics, each career s two page spread has a lot of useful info, including what skills interests would lead to this career, related careers and their page numbers in the book , and my favorite and something I ve never seen in a career book, The Realities For instance, the photographer realities are, Many hours are spent editing photos rather than shooting Networking and building a reputation are key to having a successful career. An excellent browsing introduction to the world after school Divided into 15 categories of employment, each job has a two page spread providing very basic but intriguing information For example, the pages identify your interests, skills required, entry qualifications, lifestyle, location, and the stone cold realities of the job For the Animal Care Worker there are career paths including an animal training, animal therapist, and pet groomer If these don t interest your child there are three related careers provided Although these are brief introductions the material provided is concise and interesting.Reviewed by Kelsey Cole Burns, Youth Services, Vernon Area Public Library Ecstatic that I happened to win a copy on goodreads This book has almost every career in it with up to date info I am a volunteer for a local teen organization and I plan on using this book as a way to help them out with their life decisions Thank you
