100 Jobs in Words book. 100 Jobs in Words (100 Jobs Series). 0028614321 (ISBN13: 9780028614328). To write or not to write? That is the question.

No single job suits all of us, but many of the best ones have a few attributes in common: They pay well, challenge us year after year, match our talents and skills, aren't too stressful, offer room to advance throughout our careers, and provide a satisfying work-life balance. Whether the position is in demand is also a consideration, especially among job seekers. News uses these qualities to rank the 100 Best Jobs of 2020.

This fresh, innovative series has been written to dispel the notion that All the good jobs are taken. What helped most in making this decision was Mr. Meyer's interviews with people who actually hold each of these jobs

This fresh, innovative series has been written to dispel the notion that All the good jobs are taken. Meyer's interviews with people who actually hold each of these jobs.

Comments to eBook 100 Jobs in Words (100 Jobs Series)

This is a bad time for English majors, says one of my professors. Most corporate communication departments have been combined with either marketing or sales or newsletters have been dumped on overworked managers. Book publishers are scaling back in order to not go bankrupt. Newspapers are laying of employees with decades of experience. They usually turn to freelance editing and writing, saturating that market.

There are still jobs and ways for word lovers to make money. But since this book was written in 1996 there are no references to how to make money online. Most of the jobs listed would have been great suggestions for the mid-nineties but times have changed too much for this industry. The things listed are too obvious and too saturated.

The most helpful guidance book I've found on this subject so far was I'm an English Major Now What?.

I was struggling with deciding on my college major when I discovered this fantastic book. Not only did it help me decide my major, but it also allowed me to answer the question: "What can you do with an English major besides teach?" A lot, believe me! What helped most in making this decision was Mr. Meyer's interviews with people who actually hold each of these jobs. Good questions about what they do all day and where they see themselves in the future are answered honestly by each professional. I highly recommend this book to anyone who needs help deciding on what they want to do with their love of writing.

This book is nothing but a list of 100 jobs that people who love words or are good with words could potentially do. (Note I said "potentially.") However, it's not a guide on how to get one of those jobs yourself, or how to direct your career path in order to even attempt to wind up at one. Instead, it consists of 100 descriptions of jobs or careers, and for each a personal essay written by someone who does that job about "How I got here, what I do, and why I like it (or love it)." I actually know one of those people in real life, and yes, they do that job, so presumably the other 99 are real life stories too and each one actually happened. But most read like this: "I went to college; and majored in English or Liberal Arts or Communications of some kind, and then I flopped around for a while taking different jobs, and I lucked into this one and it's been great."

"I flopped around" and "I lucked into it" are not pieces of career advice.

If you find it gratifying to know that someone, somewhere, got a words-related job with an English major and seems to like it well enough, then you'll enjoy this book. Just don't buy it thinking it will give you any clues that might help you turn into one of them.
