For college graduates and MBAs, searching for a job and charting a career path can be daunting. The "Vault" series will alleviate some of their concerns by providing them with much-needed information. These four sample guides from the series, written by industry experts and the Vault editorial staff, contain an overview of each field, key definitions, a history of the profession, case studies, and discussion of the types of careers available, the hiring process, typical career paths, and the qualifications needed by applicants. For example, the accounting guide discusses the "Big Four" of accounting firms, offers descriptions of key agencies, including the Financial Accounting Standards Board and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, cites trends and outlooks for the profession, and gives advice on how to prepare for the CPA Examination. Firsthand accounts by successful professionals in the field are an important part of the guides; those contemplating careers as independent film producers or literary agents, for instance, can read first-person accounts in the media and entertainment volume. These guides make for excellent starting points for job hunters and should be purchased by academic libraries for their career sections. University career centers should have them on their shelves as well. [Forthcoming titles in the series will cover fashion, real estate, corporate law, litigation law, Capitol Hill careers, and more.-Ed.]-Lucy Heckman, St. John's Univ.
