From School Library Journal:

Gr 9 Up—This steadfast reference continues to provide reliable information on basic career skills, industries, and employment trends. The bulk of the set is comprised of more than 820 job descriptions in 120 fields, expanding the previous edition by 50 new jobs in 15 new career fields. The first volume offers a step-by-step guide to choosing a career path, including an interest inventory, a personality assessment, and standardized testing, all linked to authoritative websites. This relevant introductory material also defines vocabulary such as apprenticeship and service learning, describes the myriad degree programs, and explains how to navigate emerging trends, including a social media resume. Articles on different jobs are arranged alphabetically, using title designations of the U.S. Department of Labor, are largely updated to late 2013, and offer easy-to-read narratives that are broken down into overview, background, structure, and outlook sections. Many entries feature extras such as "Words to Know," "Career Ladder," "Movers & Shakers," and "On the Cutting Edge" (which discusses the latest activities, research, or technology in a given field). The impact of digital technologies pervades many of the entries. Jobs requiring specialty certification or licensing note the specific requirements, and most entries follow up with resources or related organizations. Each volume features an extremely helpful index, and students will be able to distinguish main entries in bold. VERDICT A solid career reference.—Vicki Reutter, State University of New York at Cortland
