Short Description

Land, air, and sea vehicles need to be driven, built, and maintained, as do roads and rails. Besides offering a base of employment, the transportation field provides people with plenty of personal satisfaction. Some of these jobs are union jobs, with excellent benefits; others, such as revolutionary ride-sharing services like Uber, offer few benefits but a lot of freedom and control over where and when you work. The manufacturing jobs featured in in this book also play important roles in the national economy. One great advantage of these fields is that your supervisors recognize the need for ongoing training that will help you expand your knowledge and make you more valuable in the workplace. And best of all, you can get started in a career in transportation or manufacturing with just a high school diploma. Each title in this series contains color photos throughout and the essential information needed to find not just a job but a career that draws on the reader's particular skills and interests. Each chapter profiles a different job in the field and helps the reader to determine whether it is the right job for him or her. Web sites listed in each chapter provide further information. Key Icons appear throughout the books in this series in an effort to encourage library readers to build knowledge, gain awareness, explore possibilities and expand their viewpoints through our content rich non-fiction books. Key Icons in this series are as follows: Words to Understand are shown at the front of each chapter with definitions. These words are set in boldfaced type in that chapter, so that readers are able to reference back to the definitions-building their vocabulary and enhancing their reading comprehension. Sidebars are highlighted graphics with content rich material within that allows readers to build knowledge and broaden their perspectives by weaving together additional information to provide realistic and holistic perspectives. Educational Video features throughout have QR codes linked to online videos that provide supplemental interviews, documentaries, and historical clips. Text-Dependent Questions are placed at the end of each chapter. They challenge the reader's comprehension of the chapter they have just read, while sending the reader back to the text for more careful attention to the evidence presented there. Research Projects are provided at the end of each chapter as well and provide readers with suggestions for projects that encourage deeper research and analysis.
