About the Author:

Shelly Field is the owner of The Shelly Field Organization, a public relations and management firm specializing in celebrity clients in the music, sports, and entertainment industries. She is a career consultant to educational institutions, employment agencies, corporations, libraries, women's groups, and individuals.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7 Up-This handy volume presents clear, concise information on some 80 careers, grouped in 16 topical areas. Arranged on a spread with two columns per page, each entry opens with a career profile, listing duties, salary, prospects, prerequisites, and a potential career ladder. The text itself includes detailed descriptions of the work performed, the salary range, employment and advancement prospects, education and training required, personality traits and experience/skills necessary, unions or associations connected with the job, and practical tips for entering the field. Appendixes include degree and nondegree programs for a variety of medical careers, a list of associations and unions, a bibliography by topic, a concise glossary, and an extensive (and probably unnecessary) index. This book updates the 1997 volume and should be popular with students and career counselors.
