* The 1981 Summer Employment directory of the United States ($6.95)

* The 1981 internships ($7.95)

From Mokuleia, Hawaii, to the Berkshire Hills, from Andorra to Madrid to Tokyo, the jobs and internships listed include government positions, camps, manual labor, public- service and health organizations, communications, theater, and various industries, among others.

These three books are well organized and complete. They divide job possibilities and internships into categories for easier selection, and each listing includes a job description, necessary qualifications, dates available, wage (if there is one), the way to apply, and a name to contact.

The introduction to each book explains the best way to apply for a job and gives a sample cover letter and resume, as well as suggestions for interviews. The authors also suggest ways to find housing and meet other young people in a strange city.

Is this the year to break away fro m the usual?
