Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
YA High-school YITs (yuppies in training) will surely be interested in these suggested routes to fame and fortune. The authors begin by stressing the high level of commitment required to succeed in fast-track careers. Then they profile finance, advertising, media, real estate, executive search, sales, hospitality, and entrepreneurship. For each field, personality traits of successful workers, specific job descriptions, earnings, training, top employers, and professional journals and organizations are discussed. The upbeat mood is supported by the readable fast-paced writing and large typescript.
