School Library Journal Review

Gr 9 Up-As teenagers prepare for college, they are also thinking about life after university. These books take a field or industry-fashion, for example-and break down several different jobs in that area. Each job has its own chapter that describes what the work entails, the education requirements, and an estimated salary range. Most importantly, though, the text includes quotes from and interviews with real people about their jobs, as well as useful details about opportunities for growth in that position. The authors strive to be as realistic as possible in their descriptions of a job's potential outlook, and every chapter concludes with a list of professional organizations and unions for more information. For the student who has a general sense of their interests, this series can help narrow their focus for their college plans. Valuable additions to any high school library. (c) Copyright 2014.
