This book listed plenty of careers and jobs and the information that was included was very useful and well laid out. However, it really only looked at the jobs you would already know about - not the hidden treasures that you didn't know existed. A good read for the basics but didn't provide me with the gem I was looking for.

Fortunately I borrowed this book from the library, as I would've been a bit disappointed if I'd paid for it.

The book seemed really thorough on first glance, but as I used the book I realised how much was missing. The career details are very brief, a couple of lines then lists of websites, which you could get straight from Google. The book initially appears to be alphabetical, but isn't strictly so - some jobs are listed alphabetically by top-level career role or a general theme, whereas others turn up as standalone. There is an index at the back, but you've got to know exactly what you're looking for. There's also a lot of 'modern' jobs missing, especially in the counselling/therapies field.

On the plus side, it's nice to see earnings details listed for the roles, as that's something that's often overstated by professional bodies.

Good easy reading, my 14 year old initially scoffed at me for having bought this, but then she did flick through and admitted it was quite interesting.....and it gave her an idea of how much various professions will pay which seems to have motivated extra efforts in school which has got to be good news!

This must be the quintessential careers guide, broad based and comprehensive with lots of references and links for additional detailed information if required.

I bought this for my daughter and it has given her some great ideas of what she could do, what she has to do to achieve jobs and what to expect.

I found this quite handy to search different career tips. It is fine for someone considering a career change and small.
The Times Careers Directory would be suitable for school/college leavers.

ok book....would not rush out & buy another one. Only covers a very limited number of careers.
