Mason Crest Publishers announces the New Careers for the 21st Century: Finding Your Role in the Global Renewal book series for school kids ages 12 and up. The cutting edge, 15 book series, which tackles the changing career landscape that young adults are looking at, is in production and scheduled to be in libraries and schools across the country and internationally in September 2010.

“There’s no denying that the world economy has experienced major changes during the past few years,” said Louis Cohen, Principal of Mason Crest Publishers. “As a result, young adults are looking at a career landscape that has undergone some major upheavals. But there are positive trends at work and exciting opportunities for those who are entering the workforce. This series presents young adults with facts about the new careers for the 21st century that they should be focused on now.”

New Careers for the 21st Century provides evidence that workers in expanding green industries, those who have computer skills, and those with the talent and enthusiasm to build a global world will find growing opportunities in a variety of fields. Along with this factual information based on the latest job research, the books also offer tips for matching specific jobs to the reader’s individual personality and interests, as well as inspiration for achieving meaning in the working world.

The editorial consultant for this series, Michael Puglisi, is the District Director of the International Association of Workforce Professionals (IAWP), New York Chapter, a nonprofit educational association exclusively dedicated to workforce professionals with a rich tradition and history of contributions to workforce excellence. He is currently the Manager at the Department of Labor’s Workforce New York One Stop Center in Binghamton, New York.

“Green world, green economy, green technology—they all say the same things: the way we do business today is changing,” said Puglisi. “Every industry will be shaped by the world’s new focus on creating a sustainable lifestyle, one that won’t deplete our natural and economic resources. The possibilities are unlimited for today’s young adults. This series can act as the first step toward their continued education, training, and career path decisions helping them take the first steps that will lead them, and our planet, to a productive and sustainable future.”
