Careers: The Graphic Guide to Finding the Perfect Job for You

As the parent of two tweens, a teen, and one young adult, I am always looking for ways to explore and discuss their ever-developing career interests and goals. These conversations can be surprising. For example, I just learned that my middle schooler, a tech-focused, serious-minded student whose most recent career aspiration involved professional soccer, has an interest in fashion styling! Who knew? And where do we go from here?

Fortunately, the library has many useful resources for teens and their parents–databases such as Career Cruising and books like this one among them. Covering over 400 jobs in various fields with a simple, appealing infographic design, this book is a great supplement to these fun and important conversations.
