It's never too early for your teen or tween to start thinking about a career, and Careers is the perfect way to do it. Inspiring and imaginative as well as practical, Careers has charts and tables that help young people gauge interest about possible careers — it's like having a personal career advisor by your side whenever you need it!

Speech pathologist? Check. Zookeeper? Check. Jewelry designer? Check.

Nurse? Architect? Chef? Check, check, and check.

Covering more than 400 jobs, Careers is organized in an easy-to-navigate, clear structure that helps guide teen and tween readers. Check at-a-glance summary panels for chosen careers to learn about salary, working hours, training, and career paths. Cross-referenced job matrix tables offer another way to learn about all the options. Tweens and teens with no idea of what kind of job to look for can start with their favorite school subjects or hobbies and find relevant careers from there. It may not be time for your teen or tween to prepare a resume and find a job, but the advice in Careers can help young people start thinking about the future!

Review:

"This is the prettiest, most well-organized, useful and up to date guide to careers that I have ever seen. It is a wonder, and it is a treasure. I haven't said this about any book, in the last twenty years." — Dick Bolles, author, What Color Is Your Parachute?

"It will be a useful book for our family over the next few years as we begin the college/career process...I hope this book can give our kids some options they may not have originally considered." — SincerelyStacie.com

"This gives readers a range of options." — Booklist

"Getting a kid pointed in the right direction toward a career that is both meaningful and fulfilling is invaluable. Careers does a great job of laying out those opportunities." — GeekDad

"A useful additional purchase for a career section in a public or school library." — VOYA Magazine

"Careers is the ideal reference for undecided teens, parents, and guidance counselors looking for inside information on hundreds of careers." — San Diego Family Magazine

"Inspiring and imaginative as well as practical, Careers has charts and tables that help young people gauge interest about possible careers—it's like having a personal career advisor by your side whenever you need it!" — ChildressInk.com

From School Library Journal:

Gr 6 Up—A typical library's collection of career books can quickly become dated or out of touch. Enter this manual. With simple graphics, bright colors, and a vast compendium of information, this guide will engage teens who are wondering, "What now?" Each page contains a job description, information on related careers and salaries, and a skills guide. The book explains precisely how to go from dipping a toe into the waters of a particular job to the highest positions within the field. The index is well organized, and the entries are nicely cross-referenced. The material can be dry or a bit vague at times, especially for readers who would be interested in discovering real-life applications. However, it should be useful for students, and the wide scope of knowledge will keep it current for longer than many comparable titles. VERDICT This strong addition will be fun for browsers as well as for those selecting college majors and making job decisions.—Erinn Black Salge, Saint Peter's Prep, Jersey City, NJ
