Synopsis

Extraordinary Jobs Set by Alecia Devantier, Carol A Turkington

Every wonder who wrangles the animals during a movie shoot? What it takes to be a brewmaster? How that play-by-play announcer got his job? What it is like to be a secret shopper? The new Extraordinary Jobs series explores the many exciting, unusual, and off-the-beaten path professions that are perfect for those with a yen for the out-of-the-ordinary. From astronaut to volcanologist, blimp pilot to smokejumper, this series provides an insider's view of some of the most intriguing and quirky ways people can earn a living. The perfect resource for students investigating career opportunities filled with challenges and excitement, the Extraordinary Jobs series profiles at least 30 careers in each field. Entries provide an At a Glance quick-reference section describing required education and experience, salary, helpful personal traits, and job outlook; an overview exploring a typical day on the job, its perks and pitfalls, and tips to help readers start exploring the career today; and a brief snapshot interview offering a firsthand account from someone in the profession. Useful appendixes include lists of relevant associations, Web sites, and schools, as well as a Read More About It list for further reading.
