Do you dread the thought of wearing a suit and sitting in front of a computer screen all day?120 Jobs That Won't Chain You to Your Deskhighlights those dream jobs that won't leave you with desk-job slouch at the end of the day. Each job profile in the book includes quotes from people in the field as well as practical advice on launching a career. Some of the jobs profiled require college (and even an advanced degree), some require professional school, and some others simply require a very strong individual will. Many of these professions are tempting but might seem out of reach, since the path is not as direct (or well-traveled) as, say, that for an aspiring attorney or an accountant. Each job profile includes the following subjects: -A (Relatively Typical) Day in the Life -Extreme Days -Preparing for Success -Getting Your Foot in the Door -Biggest Challenges -Best Perks

If you're wanting a list of jobs which aren't in an office setting, this book does offer that. It is fun to read some of the descriptions of the most hectic day on the job would be for something which you may find interesting.

Instead of reading this book to possibly discover a job which jumps out at you and inspires you, it may be more beneficial to study what your own skills are and narrow things down from there.

There are just so many jobs that after a while it can get overwhelming and possibly discouraging if you are truly looking for a career better suited for you as it does not guide you in any way. It literally is a list of jobs which you could see just on the internet if you wanted.
