Editorial Reviews

New entries in a series that looks at career options and provides practical advice for job seekers. Careers in Child Care, written by writers who have education degrees and teaching experience as well, covers working with children in various settings, ranging from child care centers to in-home child care, employment as a nanny or as a babysitter, education careers, working in sports and recreation centers, health centers, and child welfare, arts and entertainment careers, and more: everything from working as a pediatrician to teaching children as a tennis pro. Chapters provide detailed job descriptions, career prospects, salaries, and benefits, training needed, events in a typical work day, and advice on finding employment, including sample application forms. There are descriptions of individuals' careers and experience, and an appendix listing organizations in various areas that provide career information. The volume on writing careers, written by a professional writer, covers writing fiction and nonfiction, freelancing, working as a staff writer or reporter, screenwriting, technical writing, marketing, advertising and public relations writing, and other writing opportunities. The various careers are described in depth, augmented by first-hand accounts. Appendices list professional associations, further reading, and preparatory programs for writing fields. Both books feature many bold headings that break up the detailed information into manageable pieces, and they will help anyone interested in these careers to explore options and find out how to break in.
