Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Greg M. Romaneck
Think back to a time when you were unclear about what you wanted to do with your life. As you ponder that moment of confusion it is possible that choosing a career was part of the noise that was perplexing you. Selecting a field of work is one of the most important decisions in a person's life. So many hours of a many peoples' lives are dedicated to working or worrying about it. Therefore, making an informed choice when looking at fields of work is one of the most important actions a person takes. That decision often happens at a fairly young age and at a time when people may not have very much experience actually working. Therefore, harnessing whatever tools are available to make informed choices about career paths is something that can be very helpful in that process. In this volume of the "Careers with Character" series readers are given a look into some of the most recent approaches to self-assessment in the field of career choice making. In turn, a variety of interest inventories, personality preference assessments, and skill surveys are presented with in-depth explanation of their use and value. Each assessment is thoroughly explained with an emphasis on what the information gathered by them can be used for. Along the way the author includes mini-vignettes designed to illustrate some of the dilemmas inherent in trying to find a career without knowing what to look for. As part of an excellent career awareness series, this particular publication provides valuable resource information that will benefit both younger readers and the professionals who help them with their decision making.
