"This is the prettiest, most well-organized, useful and up to date guide to careers that I have ever seen." -- Dick Bolles, author, What Color Is Your Parachute?

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 middle- and high-schoolers gauge interest about possible careers -- it's like having a personal college and career advisor by their side whenever they need it!

Covering more than 400 jobs in fields that range from STEM to sports, arts to administration, finance to farming, 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 inspire them to start thinking about the future.

Very useful, especially since this year I have a term paper on different careers! :)

I absolutely love this book and it is very useful although I'm still in Gr.5

Very, very useful to me (a high schooler thinking about possible future careers). My only regret is that I don't feel like most of the careers fit me, but trust me, that tells a lot more more against me than against the book!

Just beginning to explore possible careers for your future? This great exploration book, with friendly 2-page spreads, will give you key options to get you from high school to the right job.

Useful information in an easy to understand format. Every profession has several checklists and, most useful to me, a list of related jobs. The only criticism I have is that this book doesn't include any psychological tests, which could help lead you to the best fitting jobs. It is also based on the US job market so some fields may not be as applicable in Canada.
