Presented in two volumes, the job guide handbook can be used by high school and college counselors, students, recruiters for business and industry, and parents in determining areas of employment which are compatible with a student's or potential employee's interests, abilities, and preparation. Volume 1 lists job areas for students majoring in anthropology, economics, history, languages, mathematics, political science, psychology, and sociology. Volume 2 covers possible jobs for majors in accounting, biology, chemistry, geology, and physics. Both volumes begin with a lengthy glossary of terms pertaining to the occupations. The guide is divided into sections according to academic majors, each section providing a list of areas of employment for the major. For each area of employment the guide briefly defines the job activities involved, lists the types of establishments providing jobs in that area, and lists the job opportunities (job titles) possible in the area of employment.
