Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Peterson, the author of two books in Peterson's Guides' "Careers Without College" series, provides a blueprint for learning what career is best for you and locating employment in that field. She arranges material according to the four recommended steps in the process: self-exploration, occupational exploration, goal setting and decision making, and implementation of the decision. The self-exploration section depends heavily on using the Strong and Myers-Briggs assessment tools, which both require a counselor for administration and interpretation. The occupational exploration section is similar to material in other books, such as Rachel Bolle's What Color Is Your Parachute? Many of the advisers for this work are from library career centers, resulting in a strong section on using the library and researching in cyberspace. Although the content is not innovative, the tone is informal and inviting and the exercises well designed, and some good resources are provided. An optional purchase.-Joshua Cohen, Mid-Hudson Lib.
