Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-This valuable set provides practical essays ("Communicating with People Who Have Disabilities," "Financial Management for Women") and current, annotated directories of organizations, films, publications, and other resources. Two essays in Disabilities address professionals, discussing how to make budget-challenged libraries accessible and class environments more suitable for students with disabilities. Directories provide lists of educational assistance and funding opportunities for those with temporary or permanent conditions; sources for assistive technologies; resources for caregivers; and a short section on camps. Essays in Women and Minorities cover topics such as equal education, role models, starting your own business, affirmative action, and workplace diversity. The bulk of each book is a listing of financial-aid sources, professional organizations, colleges, and other programs such as urban leagues and labor alliances. Apprenticeship Programs details the history of apprenticeship, how to apply for one, and workplace etiquette. The lengthiest section consists of chapters on specific fields, describing the nature of the work, salaries, and job outlook. The "Apprenticeships by Eligibility" section contains chapters on Job Corps; Goodwill Industries; and special programs for veterans, the disabled, and others. Directories list job centers, state liaisons, and other job coordinators. Essays in Internships explain how to pick a position, write a resume and cover letter, find a mentor, ace an interview, work abroad, and more. Listings are arranged by interest areas. Suitable for public, school, or vocational libraries.-Vicki Reutter, Cazenovia High School, NY Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
