Career Prep: Working in a Hospital

Career books are one of those hot button collections that continually give me a twitch when they aren’t current. This one is really out of date with respect to job descriptions and duties. Aimed at middle/high school age, this book covers the myriad of jobs, beyond that of just a doctor or a nurse. The intent of this book isn’t too bad. I like the attempt to show what the day looks like, training needed, and what a particular job is all about. I doubt any of the job titles and descriptions even exist anymore.

Anyone hanging out here in our little corner of the Internet, knows that I have a serious issue with outdated career materials. I am all about giving girls some inspiration to consider STEM careers. I doubt that this book will inspire anyone. I like what this book is attempting: delivering some solid advice on the jobs available, necessary training, career paths, etc. That was then and this is now. As a person who has been hanging out in libraries since before this book was published, technology has changed and so have the careers.
