Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Della A. Yannuzzi
Careers in the Creator and Media Sector attract many young people. The jobs available are varied, from journalism, publishing, radio, television, and many more. Author Rooney describes the different jobs that can be interesting and exciting, as well as demanding and difficult. This book is also a guide for anyone interested in working in the fields of journalism, radio, television, publishing, and other areas of media. For example, what does it take to become an actor, singer, dancer, or radio announcer? Profiles of people working in these fields will help readers understand what it takes to become a successful media professional. The author also explores important creative careers that are often behind the scenes, such as set designers or sound engineers. Included are lists of qualifications and required job tasks for different careers. For example, the tasks of a Video Editor are many, beginning with moving footage to a computer from cameras, films and archives, to using software to enhance shots digitally. Unfamiliar job descriptions such as an Advertising Account Executive are also explored. Creative and Media Careers is a good resource book for young people searching for that one creative job that is just right for them. Color photographs are included as well as a bibliography, websites, and glossary. Reviewer: Della A. Yannuzzi
