H.W. Wilson Launches Careers Database

Continuing its Current Issues database series, the H.W. Wilson Co. (www.hwwilson.com) has launched Careers, a new resource designed for students or anyone considering launching or changing careers in today's tough job market. Careers offers an array of information on diverse careers in a single vetted source, in articles selected by H.W. Wilson editors from thousands of magazines and journals. From jeweler to journalist, fashion designer to florist, librarian to lawyer, Careers covers qualifications, duties and responsibilities, pay scales, application processes, and future prospects.

For each career, 15 to 20 in-depth articles are provided, hand-picked by Wilson editors to offer a solid grounding, answer key questions, and examine controversies from multiple perspectives. Users can view articles in plain text, or choose PDF page images for access to any graphical content accompanying the article. The database is structured to help users narrow broad interests into focus on specific questions and career challenges. Editors' introductions offer further help in defining subjects, delivering vital background information and explanations of the importance of the subtopics.

New information on each subtopic is provided through links to WilsonWeb searches. Clicking "More Full Text Articles" or "More Citations" links on the main articles page retrieves articles and citations from any of more than 4,200 journals indexed daily by the WilsonWeb database service. Additional information is provided with links to authoritative websites selected by Wilson editors (complete with annotations explaining their significance). Users can also launch an automatic Google search on each subtopic with a single click direct from the WilsonWeb interface.

Careers also features a "Job-Finder's Toolbox" with annotated links to more than 50 career-related websites, including many popular job-search and industry specific sites.
