Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Sarah A. Hudson
The information provided in this career resource aimed at high school students is similar to that in The Occupational Outlook Handbook, but the editors have included only one hundred top growing careers, with information on the subspecialties within each career. The editors chose the careers based on information from the U. S. Department of Labor "and a variety of other sources." Although these sources are not cited, the editors credit the Occupational Outlook Handbook, Occupational Outlook Quarterly, Bureau of Labor Statistics, and College Placement Council. The attractive, easy-to-follow format is easy to read and includes adequate white space, boldface type introducing sections, and a shaded bar on the bottom of each page providing information at a glance, such as governmental classification systems for job titles (for the United States and Canada), minimum education requirements, personal interests, school subjects, and certification or licensing requirements. The work displays the entries in alphabetical order by name of career and also provides an index and table of contents. The contents of each entry includes Definition (of job title), Nature of the Work, Requirements, Opportunities for Experience & Exploration, Methods of Entering, Advancement, Employment Outlook, and Conditions of Work. The editors emphasize growth in the areas of education, computer technology, social services and health care, and service industry careers, and they stress the need for technical education, on-the-job training, apprenticeships, and continuing education. In addition, the editors honestly explain the nature of the work, discussing work hours and stress factors. Especially helpful to students is the information on gaining experience and knowledge before choosing the career, and practical guidance on finding career leads. While comparable data may be found elsewhere, this resource would be a valuable addition to a career collection. Index.
