With more and more teenagers finishing high school and going on to college, the helping professions are a rapidly expanding industry. A job in this field -- be it as a zoologist, a veterinarian, or a marine biologist -- can be an exciting and fulfilling experience. The author covers many jobs that don't require special training: working in a luxury pet hotel, breeding animals, or working in a pet store. The list is endless! Also included is information on salaries and an extensive section on training centers, veterinary associations, recommended Web sites, and books of interest.
