College and Beyond: Library Information Sources on Careers.
The first draft of a proposal for a book tentatively entitled "College and Beyond: Library Information Sources on Careers," this document provides information intended to aid career changers, career counselors, and librarians seeking career information in the library. The book is organized around three principal areas of interest for people going to college to prepare for a career: finding the right job, finding the right school, and finding the right city in which to go to school or work. Within each of these areas the book is arranged in the order that a person might follow if systematically using the library to obtain information about a job, university, or city. Major topics include: (1) employment (getting organized, resumes, career descriptions, internships, potential employer identification, and finding out about a specific company); (2) graduate schools (finding the right school, school and program information, faculty and department research, financial aid sources, examination preparation, international study, and alternative education options); and (3) cities (descriptive overviews, comparative data, employment and earnings, taxes, crime, climate, health, culture, and travel). The locations of sources available in the Bailey/Howe Library at the University of Vermont are indicated and some assignments are included. (CGD)
