Choice Review

In this series, Vault offers a useful addition to academic libraries having career sections (as many community-technical colleges do). Each title includes an overview of the profession (e.g., accounting, fashion, consulting), a categorization of subspecialities within the field, industry trends and outlook, the hiring process, resume writing, sample interview questions, and what to expect on the job. Glossaries add to the series' usefulness. Somewhat distracting are the ads for Vault's own career consulting services, and those of other companies, strewn throughout the books. Three titles, dealing with the top law firms in Chicago, Boston, and Texas, are arranged differently: they offer four-page profiles of the top firms in these areas, giving the number of attorneys, types of law practiced, employment contact, salary range, benefits and drawbacks (called "uppers" and "downers") of working for the firm, and highlights from a survey of employees conducted by Vault. Affordable additions to most college libraries; the law firm titles are more appropriate for law libraries. ^BSumming Up: Optional. Undergraduate and community-technical college libraries. L. K.
