Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
This series suggests career possibilities based on interests and personality types, which may help students who are beginning to think about what path to follow. Written by professional career writers, they offer brief, easy-to-read overviews of job options, training needed, and salaries, with advice from people in the field and lists of organizations to contact for further information. For example, the title on aquatic careers describes jobs in aquatic science, such as oceanographer and marine mammal expert; Navy and Coast Guard careers; commercial fishing; water transportation; cruise ship; water safety; and water sports. The book for persuasive types goes beyond sales careers to describe jobs in public relations, fund-raising, marketing and advertising, politics, law, and education as well, while the book for scientific types examines careers in biological and medical sciences, physical and agricultural sciences, engineering, computer science, and mathematics. Job outlooks and helpful one- to two-page-long descriptions of what they do by people working in various fields are highlights of these introductory career titles. Also newly available is the second edition of Careers for Crafty People and Other Dexterous Types, by Mark Rowh (112p, 99-47856, isbn: 0-658-00212-0), to add to the many other titles in this series.
