While other books for career seekers and changers try to sum up hundreds of opportunities with a brief page or two on each, "The Insider's Guide to the Top 20+ Careers in Business and Management" lets two dozen successful accountants, bankers, ad managers, marketers, systems analysts, and other executives explain in depth and in their own words what they do, how they do it, and how readers can, too. These tell-it-like-it-is profiles take readers behind the scenes as each executive sits down to work; meets with superiors, subordinates, and clients; troubleshoots ongoing projects; and reflects on the rewards (and occasional frustrations) of his or her career. These same executives then answer 15 of the most commonly asked questions for anyone entering their field: What challenges do you face most often? Which specific skills do you need and where did you obtain them? How much of your day involves interacting with others, crunching numbers, or working with computers? And, of course, what's the earning potential in your line of work? Editor Tom Fischgrund also provides his own real-world tips on selecting a career path, writing winning resumes and application letters, preparing for interviews, succeeding on the job, and more.

If one wants to know the responsibilities and duties of a particular profession, it is only necessary to check the ubiquitous Occupational Outlook Handbook or any other of a number of vocational guides. At some point, though, in one's attempting to choose a career, it becomes important to know how a banker actually spends his or her day or how an accountant really feels about his or her job. It is toward this end that editor Fischgrund interviewed an advertising executive, a financial consultant, a property manager, an investment banker, a restaurant manager, and 15 others in the field of business and management and profiles a "month in the life" of each. He specifically asks each about salary, tasks performed, skills and training required, misconceptions others have about the field, sources of frustration and satisfaction, and advice for those considering the profession. Fischgrund has similarly profiled MBA programs in The Insider's Guide to the Top Ten Business Schools (1993). Recommended for career and young adult collections. David Rouse
