Let's say that you like to write, Careers If You Like Writing by Robert Green may give you some suggestions. This book talks about a variety of careers that use writing. The professions range from the expected, journalism and blogging, to the not so anticipated, lawyer. All of the careers offer additional ways to gather information and find out more about what you are interested in.
Other books that are included in this series include: Careers If You Like Science, Careers If You Like Math, Careers If You Like Government and Politics, Careers If You Like History, and Careers If You Like the Arts.
Another book that we have on the shelf that might help in that important life decision is 50 Best Jobs for Your Personality by Michael J. Farr and Laurence Shatkin. This book starts by determining your personality type and uses that to make suggestions that fit that personality. After you have determined a list of professions, the book further breaks it down by income potential, industry growth, and availability. This could be useful information in a competitive economy.
The final book I will mention today is College Majors Handbook by Neeta P. Fogg, Paul E. Harrington, and Thomas F. Harrington. This book starts with the college degree and moves to what careers can be found with that degree. It also lists income potential and employment outlooks.
