Gr 9 Up-Covering 100 titles, this clearly and concisely written work expands on the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Outlook Handbook. The jobs are divided into 12 different sectors, including agriculture and forestry, energy trading, environmental protection, and transportation. Each profile within a sector includes the nature of the work, working conditions, employment, training and qualifications, job outlook, earnings, related occupations, sources of additional information, and further reading. Job titles are quite varied and span a wide array of education levels, including entries ranging from hazardous-materials-removal workers to fuel-cell engineers. Although sources aren't formally cited within each entry, in most instances a casual reference is made to the material's origin. Much of the data is from U.S. government publications and professional organizations. A useful addition to school and public libraries. -Lindsay Cesari, Baldwinsville School District, NYα(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
