Description - What Can I Do When I Grow Up?: A young person's guide to careers, money - and the future by The School of Life

It's impossible for a child to spend too long around adults without one of them coming up and asking, as if it were the most normal thing in the world, 'What do you want to do when you grow up?' They mean for this to be a relatively simple question; the idea is that you'll quite easily be able to say something like, 'A teacher' or 'A doctor' and then the adult will move on - and bother someone else.

But the truth can be a lot more complicated, and if you've ever felt confused or annoyed by the question, you have every right: knowing what you might want to do with your working life is one of the biggest, oddest and hardest questions of all. It might take many decades to find a good answer to it - and it's one that most adults are still grappling with...

This is a unique book about careers and the world of work written expressly for children. It takes us on a journey around some of the most essential questions within the topic: how can one discover one's passions, what should a 'good' job involve, what is a good amount of money to try to make, how does the economy function - and acknowledges that the job you might do one day probably doesn't even exist now. The result is a book that should spark some exceptionally fruitful conversations and help children look to their future work life with positivity and anticipation.
