WHAT EXACTLY IS THIS?

A no-BS directory of more than fifty cool careers.

A book that explains, in detail, what each job really entails — and then tells you what you need to do to actually get it.

A book for people searching for the right job. Dont panic; you will not end up a hobo or pharmaceutical test subject.

AND HOW THE HELL WILL IT HELP ME?

Each chapter is based on insider knowledge gleaned from interviews with the cream of the crop in their fields--experts like Kate Spade on fashion design; Nicola Kraus, The Nanny Diaries, on being an author; Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, Little Miss Sunshine, and Eli Roth, Hostel, on directing films… and many more.

Youll get answers to burning career questions such as:

What will I actually do all day?

Do I have to wear a suit and pointy shoes?

How do I even get my foot in the door?

What should I say on the interview?

What are the pros and cons of this job?

Will I be able to afford a yacht?

By the end of each chapter, youll know exactly what each career is, whether you want to pursue it, and exactly what its going to take to get it.

Over fifty different jobs are detailed, including:

Blogger

Chef

Event Planner

Investment Banker

Magazine Writer

Multimedia Designer

Personal Trainer

Veterinarian

Video Game Developer

Wardrobe Stylist

And many more…
