For instance, new technologies offer additional methods to develop writing skills ("When social media users curate news stories&30;they are performing the basic function of an editor"). Whereas history buffs will be delighted to learn that their expertise could be valuable to foreign embassies, government agencies, and even movie sets. Each volume features eight specific jobs, describing a typical workday with quotes and an interview. For example, in Government and Politics a congressional staffer who synthesizes information and prepares briefs is featured. Chapters are enhanced with color photos, fact boxes, employment outlook data, and a list of other compatible careers (referencing the Occupational Outlook Handbook ). Unfamiliar job titles, such as "Atmospheric Scientist," are cross-referenced.
