College to Career: The Guide to Job Opportunities

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Mitchell discusses about 100 jobs, including, for most, a description of the work; education and skills required; the number of employees and where they work; salary information; employment prospects; related careers; and addresses of professional associations. If you think this sounds like the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Outlook Handbook, you're right. There are some differences: the 1986-87 edition of OOH (used as a source for College to Career ) covers twice as many occupations, and in greater detail. Mitchell includes brief comments from people employed in particular fields, lists the level of computer skills needed to perform a job, and gives some statistics on women and minorities. As the title implies, Mitchell concentrates on jobs that require a college education. The OOH is a better first choice, but college libraries, and public libraries not overstocked in this area, may want to consider adding the reasonably-priced College to Career .
