In this nuts-and-bolts guide, over 750 professionals speak candidly about "the good, the bad, and the ugly" of two dozen popular professions. Dispensing with romantic fantasies, real-world professionals -- from nurses and pharmacists to architects and attorneys -- speak about the day-to-day realities of their careers in six categories: College vs. Reality; The Biggest Surprise; Hours and Advancement; The Best and the Worst; Changes in the Profession; and Would You Do It All Over Again?

Chapters include overviews of each profession, followed by helpful information about education, testing, and registration and licensing requirements; the number of positions across the country; and the average starting or median annual salaries. This valuable resource is filled with the open, personal insights and observations most students and career-changers want -- and need -- to make informed decisions about what they will do with the rest of their lives.
