This annual is meant for the student who is seeking a job for the summer or just simply planning a vacation. Actually, pages 86 through 92 should be consulted first, for here there is a flow chart (with page references) that indicates what a person can do during the summer, along with personality profile/job characteristic mergers, and appropriate addresses (about 110) for writing away for more details.

This short book, good for 1982, is based on 1981 experiences. For the future, of course, libraries and individuals should acquire the latest edition, although given the state of the economy, it might be some time before there will be any major changes. Good topics, capably handled, include: where to look for that job, how to get that job, compensation, self-employment, volunteer work (which is good for the experience), vacations, and summer studies. The book, directed to high school and community college students, is extremely useful for its attempts to eliminate summer monotony.
