5.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too, April 9, 2007
This review is from: In Their Shoes: Extraordinary Women Describe Their Amazing Careers (Paperback)
In this wonderful reference guide from Deborah Reber, you can find an astounding amount of information from women across the globe in a variety of career fields. Laid out in a simple, easy-to-use and follow way, IN THEIR SHOES highlights a number of career choices, and the pertinent information you need to decide if a particular path is right for you.

Each career - from a forensic scientist to a librarian to a journalist and everything in between - is featured with the same layout.

You'll find "the facts," including what the career entails, where you can find a job in that particular field, how you go about getting that type of job, what type of money you can expect to make, the dress code for the profession, and the stress factor for that career, rated on a scale from 1 to 10.

Each career - and, in turn, each amazing woman profiled - also offers practical advice to readers interested in pursuing the same field of interest, an interview held by the author, answers to questions from teen readers, a few points of interest as to what it takes to do the job, related careers, and a timeline of the professional's life. Everything you could want, and need, to know about the women featured in IN THEIR SHOES and their chosen career is in this book.

This is the perfect guide for any girl who is ready to start deciding on what path they would like their career choice to take, and even for those who are just interested in reading about the amazing positions that are out there. With just about everything you need to make some firm decisions, IN THEIR SHOES also points readers to additional sources of information for each particular career. It also includes a career chooser, which is a checklist of job traits to help you in your quest for the perfect career, and an index that can help you find facts in a hurry.
