School Library Journal (November 1, 2016)
Gr 7 Up-How can favorite school subjects translate into a career? This approach describes sought after jobs derived from curricular interest areas. For instance, new technologies offer additional methods to develop writing skills ("When social media users curate news stories...they are performing the basic function of an editor"). Whereas history buffs will be delighted to learn that their expertise could be valuable to foreign embassies, government agencies, and even movie sets. Each volume features eight specific jobs, describing a typical workday with quotes and an interview. For example, in Government and Politics a congressional staffer who synthesizes information and prepares briefs is featured. Chapters are enhanced with color photos, fact boxes, employment outlook data, and a list of other compatible careers (referencing the Occupational Outlook Handbook). Unfamiliar job titles, such as "Atmospheric Scientist," are cross-referenced. VERDICT Recommended for upper middle school and high school students seeking career inspiration. © Copyright 2016.
