This compendium of creative careers is here to help you open up to all of the incredible career possibilities out there. While some of the featured careers may not be for you (taxidermy anyone?) others may be the perfect fit for your skill set, interests, talents and curiosities. Regardless of what you think of each of the careers featured in this book, as a whole they represent opportunity in all its forms. Beyond the obvious creative careers (painting, dancing, writing) there are many other sectors that require creative, enquiring minds. The 99 careers in the book show you a new world of possibility - from Smokejumpers to Fortune cookie writers, Truffle hunters to Food stylists, and Golf ball divers to Perfumers. This is a fun career guide with practical advice that goes way beyond the boring. Think outside the box.
