Career Stories are real-world career descriptions and insights collected from interviews of more than 1900 people working in 200+ careers. The professionals interviewed for this feature provide descriptions of their jobs, list the best and worst parts of their work, offer tips for those considering or committed to entering their profession, and more.
Career Stories help students and career-changers answer questions like "What's it like to be a nurse?", "What do accountants do?", and "What does it take to be a successful school teacher?". Because career stories are published anonymously, they reflect an unvarnished view of each profession.
