Green, Donna Hayden. Dream job profiles; the young & successful share their secrets.
A real-life glimpse into ten odysseys to the perfect career, Green's interviews offer tips and encouragement for the job hunter. The ten careers range from dog trainer and cosmetologist to astronomer, marine scientist, talent manager, mayor, reporter on celebrity news, and video game reviewer. Green makes a compelling case for choosing a political career, which has many negative aspects. She is more convincing in describing the work of an animal advocate. Concluding remarks include the usual tips about networking, chutzpah, and persistence. Mary Ellen Snodgrass, Hickory, NC
