Key Features and Benefits • Information to learn about and land the right job—all in one resource. • Job descriptions are written as easy-to-read narratives, about two-to-three pages long each. • Includes a brand-new assessment called the “Job-Match Grid” to help readers match their personal skills and abilities to the jobs in the book, so that they can find those that suit them best. The assessment also lists five “job characteristics” for each job so that you can judge if its physical demands, working conditions, economic trends, and other factors suit you. The seven skills covered in the assessment include artistic, communication, interpersonal, managerial, mathematics, mechanical, science. The five job characteristics covered in the assessment are economically sensitive, geographically concentrated, hazardous conditions, outdoor work, and physically demanding. • Descriptions, data, and statistics are from the latest Occupational Outlook Handbook by the U.S. Department of Labor, the most reliable and current source of career information. • Text covers all the points important in detailed career exploration and research: nature of the work, working conditions, job outlook through 2014, education needed, earnings, related occupations, and additional information sources, including Web sites. • Highly practical and effective job search information in the bonus section helps readers develop their “skills language,” make career decisions, write resumes, get two interviews a day, dramatically improve their interviewing skills, and learn the most effective job search methods. • Features resume examples written by professional resume writers for jobs described in the book. • Includes helpful information on important labor market trends. • Provides high-quality current labor market information—a key consideration for anyone doing career research and planning. • Part of JIST’s Top Careers series.
