Discovering Careers for your Future: English

English - J.G. Ferguson Publishing Company

This was such a good read. I really enjoyed reading up on what you should be studying in order to go into a specific field. I really found the section on Interpreting and Translating to be extremely helpful. Not only does it tell you what the job consists of, but it tells you what you should be studying in college and what is the expected salary won in that field. I really enjoyed learning about what I should be doing to become a translator. My only complaint about the book is that I wish it went into more depth about the the specific classes one could see in college.


This book is a great introduction to anyone who is curious about the types of jobs that are out there in the English department. Check it out if you are interested in becoming an editor, a writer, an English teacher, etc.
