Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Wanted Gerontology Workers, Gerontological Specialists, and Gerontologists for careers now and into the future.

As our population of persons aged 65 and over grows and lives longer through these ages, the need for more practitioners with gerontology-specific training is growing as well. Opportunities for careers in gerontology are everywhere and more are appearing every day, however the increasing number of options in this field makes the task of finding information, mentoring, and jobs more difficult. How do you know if gerontology is right for you and what options for practice are available?

101 Careers in Gerontology will guide you in your search, providing glimpses into and information about a broad range of options that are gerontology-specific or gerontology-related.

This guide is for all levels of job seekers-college or high school students looking to begin careers or paths of study, professionals needing credentials, mid-career job seekers, even guidance counselors or parents looking for help counseling young adults. Types of jobs and where you would work-including areas you may not have considered such as clothing design, anthropology, or law-education requirements for those jobs, practitioner profiles, and emerging job prospects are all outlined to give you the information you need to decide which path in gerontology is right for you. Interviews with practitioners provide insight on what it's like to be starting out in gerontology or to have worked in the field for years, as well as the experience of starting out with a degree versus on-the-job learning.

So go ahead, use this book and tweak your interest, spur your imagination, or identify a broader spectrum of career possibilities that might be a good fit for you. Welcome to the exciting, dynamic, and ever-expanding professional world of Gerontology

Book News Annotation:

Grabinski (gerontology, Eastern Michigan U.) provides a guide that details 101 careers in the field of gerontology, for college or high school students, professionals, and guidance counselors and parents. Job types are profiled, with information on educational and experience requirements, certification, competencies and skills needed, compensation, workplaces, professional organizations and websites, and prospects, in addition to 23 interviews with practitioners. Some profiles cover more than one position, showing the possible career paths. Jobs are presented alphabetically and range from adult day program coordinator and applied sociologist to speech-language pathologist and researcher. A concluding section describes positions in different disciplines such as anthropology, history, and philosophy, professional fields and subfields, and others related to gerontology. There is no index or bibliography. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
