FROM HIGH SCHOOL TO A JOB

For one reason or another a great many young people are unable to go to college and must look around for satisfying work they can step into after high school. This book will help. With a background of other career books (see For Immediate Release, and Never Too Young to Earn), Mr. Paradis comes to the task with know-how and the desire to help. Alphabetically, he lists in part one, the main occupational fields (professions excluded) from banking to transportation, with requirements for and duties of the special and related jobs in each. Part two contains a discussion of how to decide what a person is best suited for and, once settled, how to find and do a good job. But there is more too. The whole field of business and its prime mover, the profit motive, is analyzed in simple terms. And at the last there is an afterthought on college which indicates that whoever has any desire or opportunity at all, should go. With an index and extensive lists of supplementary reading, places to contact and so forth, this should be a goldmine of information for any young person thinking of the future.
