Career Opportunities in Science and Technology. LC Science Tracer Bullet.
Cadoree, Michelle, Comp.
This guide is intended for those who wish to investigate career possibilities and opportunities in science and technology. Sources providing descriptions of jobs and careers in these areas, and training and courses of study required, the potential job markets, and the rewards that are possible in choosing such a career are given. This Tracer Bullet updates and supersedes TB 86-10. Not meant to be a comprehensive bibliography, this compilation is designed--as the name of the series implies--to put the reader "on target." Included are: (1) subject headings used by the Library of Congress, under which books on career opportunities in science and technology can be located in most card, book, and online catalogs; (2) basic texts; (3) specialized titles; (4) related titles; (5) juvenile literature; (6) Washington/Baltimore metropolitan area job opportunities; (7) abstracting and indexing services that index relevant journal articles and other literature; (8) journals in which articles on careers and career planning can be found; (9) representative journal articles on careers and career planning; (10) selected materials available in the Science Reading Room pamphlet box collection; and (11) addresses of additional sources of information.
