James Smith opens the door to the exciting array of twenty-first-century career opportunities that will result from today's trends and developing technologies and shows readers how to prepare now to flourish professionally in the future.

Based on extensive research and interviews with experts, 21st Century Careers describes hot new jobs in five categories: "almost unthinkable" careers suitable for tekkies and pioneers; "small town" careers that capitalize on the Baby Boomers' move out of urban areas; "absolutely critical" careers soon to require well-trained people by the tens of thousands; socially responsible careers; and traditional careers redefined. The book also identifies dead-end jobs for the twenty-first century (video rental franchisee, for example), and hot training spots for people who want to stay on the leading edge. College students and recent grads, Baby Boomers migrating to midlife, would-be entrepreneurs, and anyone with an eye on the future will be educated and inspired by this prescient and practical book.
