Publisher's Summary

With national coverage of the first edition in 1997, Tracks found an eager audience, including many parents needing to inform their children's choices for the future. Over 15 annual editions the title has been revised and updated. The new edition carries work descriptions, listing pay scales and qualifications to degree level, with advice from professionals in the field, and chartered institutes. The 2017 edition covers over 150 career paths in 14 sections from banking and financial services to sports and fitness. Tracks aims to provide a reliable source of information that also gives an idea of the technical operation of each area. "I never knew there were so many opportunities," a school student enthused at a presentation of the guide; an excitement we hope to preserve in the continued development of Tracks.

Different; somewhat of a dated UK job search tool

This is a 2017 edition which covers over 150 career paths in 14 sections from banking and financial services to sports and fitness. Tracks aims to provide a reliable source of information that also gives an idea of the technical operation of each area.

Frankly, if one is not seeking the specific careers covered in the title of the directory AND is residing, or planning to reside, in the UK I just do not see how this work would be of any value. Even if that criteria were met, I still question the directory's accuracy and overall worth. On a positive note; I will say that the narration was very well done and made for apleasant listen to what qwas generally pretty mundane information. A review copy of this audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in return for this unbiased review.
