Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful resource for the "decided" as well as the "undecided" college student or prospective student. Explore your area of interest before you declare a major. The book very clearly addresses on-the-job responsibilities commonly faced by persons pursuing the field, types of jobs available and percentages of majors working in each type of job, salary information and more. It was very helpful to my daughter who knew she was interested in math and/or science but did not know what she wanted to DO. I highly recommend this resource to anyone who is considering college and/or job force change.

This handbook has not yet been updated; however, its principles are still
pertinent. The author urges us to understand and know our abilities
artistically, intellectually, spatially, in language, ability to lead,
numerical, organization skills, science, pursuasiveness and socially.

The texts shows sample earnings by knowledge acquired. i.e.
high school, college and graduate school
The difference in earnings can be significant between high school and
graduate school. i.e. well over $1MM dollars in lifetime earnings
Men tend toward business and engineering careers; whereas, women major
in education and the social sciences. Applied mathematicians are
employed by private industry circa 69%; whereas, 9% are self-employed.
Physical therapists are employed by the private sector circa 38% and
11% are self-employed.

This work would be helpful in planning a career over a long term
time horizon. It is worth the price charged for the significant value
of the information contained therein.
