School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up—Information Technology talks about the technical side of things—programmer, analyst, technician—while Internet focuses on the more creative jobs in the technology industry—animator, game designer, blogger. Both include self-assessment quizzes to help students identify, based on their strengths and weaknesses, which vocation would be a good fit. Each career entry includes personal accounts of people working in the field; helpful explanations of the career; mileposts to keep track of as readers move into their 20s, 30s, and beyond; and additional resources. On the whole, these are quality introductory handbooks for those seeking careers that require more specialized schooling. They include useful end chapters on how to impress employers and how to network, as well as basic résumé and interview tips. However, they are a bit dry; teens might be turned off by the outdated graphics and textbooklike feel. Purchase for libraries that have healthy career-development sections or where YA nonfiction shares a space with adult nonfiction.—Traci Glass, Eugene Public Library, OR
