When the first career test, back in high school, pointed to librarianship, Miguel Figueroa "just blew it off." But when a similar test in the senior year of college produced the same result, Figueroa, like the librarian and editor that he is today, did his research and called three libraries (a public, an academic, and a school media center). "Of the three librarians I spoke with, each one said they had never had the same day twice nor had they ever had a bad day."As assistant director of publishing for Neal-Schuman Publishers, Figueroa acquires new authors and titles, a job he describes as "like library school everyday." The challenge, and pleasure, of the job comes from continually learning about such a broad range of topics, from children's services to facilities design to technology. "I talk to people who know everything about these topics ... it's a position that lets me sit back and learn." This article briefly notes the work of Miguel Figueroa from Neal-Schuman Publishers.
