Careers Outdoors

“Not every career-searcher is looking for desk work. Like the other entries in the Careers In series, each chapter in Careers Outdoors covers a different profession, with information on educational requirements, specialties, work environments, and more. The major appeal of this single volume is the diversity of careers covered: careers in earth science that require advanced degrees, well-paying jobs with on-the-job training, like construction equipment operator, and lower-wage jobs that don't require certification, like animal caretaker. Data on earnings and outlook is taken from the 2016 U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, one year older than that in the BLS's Occupational Outlook Handbook online. Still, for high school, trade school, or public libraries building a print career reference section, this is a solid choice.”
