This book is both an inspirational and practical guidebook, which profiles 99 interesting, unusual and relatively unexplored creative career options – from Smokejumpers to Fortune cookie writers, Truffle hunters to Food stylists, and Golf ball divers to Perfumers. While some of the featured careers may not be for everyone (taxidermy anyone?) others may be the perfect fit for someone’s skill set, interests, talents and curiosities. This book is an uplifting, positive guide for those that like to think outside the box. Think of it as the alternative career guide your guidance counselor was too afraid to talk about.
