KLIATT
This series suggests and describes professions that expand on readers' interests; for example, the nature lovers title discusses careers in the biological and geological sciences, agriculture, land use planning, forestry, and pollution control and waste management. Some of them offer firsthand accounts of people working in the field, like a yoga therapist and a health food store manager, among others, in the title for New Agers. Each book explains the training and educational background needed for various careers, along with job outlooks and earnings and lists of organizations to contact. These titles, part of a growing series, provide a helpful start for students and others just starting to brainstorm ideas for careers.
