VGM’s Careers for You Series

Were you a class clown whose teachers and parents always said you’d have to get serious if you wanted to make something of yourself? Or have you always been the shy type and are concerned that most of the good jobs go to more outgoing, talkative candidates? Perhaps people tell you you’re a born leader, to which you reply, "Gee, that’s great, but how does that translate into a career?" Or maybe you’re a do-gooder and chronic volunteer who’d like to earn a living making a difference but doesn’t know if that’s possible.

The answer to all of these quandaries is that you can find a career that lets you be yourself while enjoying success. If you’re wondering just what those career fields or specific types of jobs might be, turn to any of the books in the Careers for You series. To give you a feel for what these books are all about, here’s a sampling of the Series’ nearly 40 titles:

Each book in the series describes a number of career options that might appeal to someone for whom the title rings true. The options range from the obvious (such as being an editor if you’re a bookworm type) to the not-so-obvious (mapmaker for perfectionists). The job descriptions are accurate, written in a lively voice and include typical entry requirements and salary ranges.
