Shmoop announces the launch of Shmoop Careers, a guide to glean more information about career paths.
Online PR News – 11-June-2012 – Mountain View, CA – Mountain View, CA – At some point in a student's life, each is inevitably faced with the prospect of having to go out and get one of those “job” things. A job can be filling gordita shells at Taco Bell, or it can be answering the main switchboard at a direct mail marketing company. Both will pay bills – well, okay, maybe just one bill – but fortunately there is something even better than a job. A career. And moose tracks ice cream. But Shmoop deals with one thing at a time.
Shmoop, a publisher of digital curriculum and test prep, proudly announces the launch of their new “Shmoop Careers” section. Students can use this guide to glean more information about career paths they may be considering, or to open their minds up to new avenues. (Actuary? What in tarnation is that?)
For each career, Shmoop breaks down what students can expect if they decide to make it their livelihood. Teens will get a snapshot of what the gig entails, a glimpse into a typical day in the life, a run-down on salary, power, fame, glory, stress, qualifications and more.
Through Shmoop careers, students will learn:
What career professional would use embalming fluid.
What are the chances are of making it as an actor.
How a plumber can make more money than most lawyers.
What exactly a meteorologist does.
More careers will be added each month, so take a gander at Shmoop Careers and check back often for updates! The Shmoop guide will help students live long and prosper. Mainly prosper, although the long life thing would be nice too.
