About the Author:

Sandy Donovan has written many nonfiction books for young readers.

Review:

Sandy Donovan tackles today's teens' most common life and consumer issues in many of the titles in the non-fiction series Teen Wise Guides. From relationships to scheduling, Donovan lays out concerns and solutions in a clear, methodical manner. Each book contains an introduction, four to five chapters breaking down the important topics, and an epilogue. The addendums include a glossary, a bibliography, references for further information, and an index. Interspersed throughout the text are supplemental charts, graphs, and first-hand stories from USA Today. The publishing company also provides extra resources for educators who create an account on their website. In Job Smarts, Donovan covers everything from how to land a job to what to do with your money once you get paid. The chapter, "Landing a Job," contains sections on trending concerns such as potential employers checking social networking profiles. It also has a sample resume and cover letter, and graphs on where candidates make the most mistakes and how workers found their latest jobs. The chapter, "Managing Your Hard Earned Cash," is a welcome addition to this book. Students will learn why money is held back from their paychecks, how to pay taxes, and what kinds of bank accounts are available.
While there are many books out there on teenage employment, the eye-pleasing graphic layout, the length, and the supplemental charts and graphs from USA TODAY will make young adult readers more likely to pull Job Smarts from the shelf. Donovan presents the content in a direct and clear manner. Job Smarts will also make an excellent reference tool for consumer education, business, and economics courses.
