KIRKUS REVIEW

A summary review of job potentials and possibilities, this text talks seriously to the high school student. Aimed at the reader whose studies today will have a necessary effect on his future as a worker, it explains what high school requirements enable the student to continue his studies and enter college. The desirability of a higher education is stressed as well as the benefits accrued by getting a broad and general education. Not aimed at those readers who have already chosen a specific profession-Doctors, Lawyers, etc.-- it suggests various fields, discussing them specifically in terms of qualifications, salary possibilities, and duties. It endorses part time and summer employment as a means to greater familiarity and experience in the work field, and recommends economical ways of securing an education. A catch all, this text will not do much for the exceedingly gifted or oriented reader, but does offer the average high school student a glimpse at the more practical aspects of career preparation.
