A fun, hands-on series for young people looking to formulate and explore career goals

The Career Ideas for Teens series provides readers with an engaging way to explore their interests and options for a future career. Now in full color, each volume in this thoroughly updated series profiles 35 jobs selected from 16 Career Clusters defined by the U.S. Department of Education as part of a national career cluster initiative. Each highly illustrated book is divided into three main sections full of useful information and thought-provoking exercises.

Sections include:

  • Discover You at Work: Walks readers through a step-by-step process to identify their strengths and interests and match them to appropriate jobs. Readers use activities based on the career research of Dr. John Holland and those devised by the U.S. Department of Labor's Employment and Training Administration as part of the O*NET program.
  • Explore Your Options: Provides in-depth descriptions of approximately 35 jobs per volume and includes resources for further information. Special sidebars outline exercises that encourage readers to "hire themselves" and learn firsthand what the job is like.
  • Experiment with Success: Activities and resources teach readers how to begin networking early and how to gather career information from established professionals.

The activities in Career Ideas for Teens help readers ask the right questions about what kind of career they want and how they can prepare for it and encourage them to become their own best counselor. The perfect follow-up to the Career Ideas for Kids series, this series is an invaluable career tool for all teenagers wondering what they want to do in life.
