Consumer Guide New Job Opportunities for Women.
Lederer, Muriel; And Others
Combining actual interviews with job information, the author explores current job opportunities for women without college degrees who are entering the job market for the first time, returning to work, or changing positions. The book supplies the reader with guidelines on locating job openings, obtaining inexpensive job training, and advancing up the career ladder. New unconventional jobs just opening up to women are explored as well as new fields that are emerging at the boundaries of alread existing occupations. The author focuses attention on 49 careers in five major career areas: health care, business, armed forces, engineering and science, and public and personal service. Job descriptions include a narration of a real-life working woman's experiences on the job as well as training programs, working conditions, beginning salary ranges, and listings of sources of career information. A concluding section discusses training programs (junior/community colleges, private trade/technical/business schools, home study courses, apprenticeships, cooperative work-study programs, and industry training programs) and offers suggestions on seeking vocational counseling.
