From Booklist, by David Rouse:
"Drozdyk is the author of Hot Jobs (1994), a hip guide to jobs in communications, the media, and the arts. Here again he targets younger readers who may not be as ready to listen to job-hunting or career-planning tips served up more formally; but he seems to go out of his way to prove that, at the age of 35, he is not over the hill and can still "talk cool." In an attempt to identify with his audience, he admits to having been a clueless history major and a screwup; but he also boasts that he has always gotten every job he ever went after. The "passive" approach to job hunting includes interning, want ads, recruitment, the Internet, and temping; the "active" approach includes making connections, schmoozing, networking, and informational interviews. A third approach, the "gonzo" method, is suggested only for the dauntless, requiring cold calling and showing up unannounced. Drozdyk also discusses re sume s, cover letters, and interviewing, and he recommends tactics for getting ahead once the job is landed. "
Has lots of interviews with people who have interesting and creative jobs-- in film industry, publishing, etc.
One of the most influential books I've ever read. If you're uncertain what field you're interested in, or you're making a career change (as I did), this book offers beneficial (& humorous) insight. It'll guide you as to how to think outside the box in your pursuit of a job that "doesn't suck".
