They are just some of the categories to be found today on the free Evening Star Careers 05 CD-ROM.

Launched by The Evening Star to replace the traditional careers fair the CD-ROM is a 'must have' for anyone interested in choosing their career or making a move into a different industry.

Evening Star business advertising manager Sue Gipps said: "This CD-ROM is an essential source of information for those choosing their careers.

"We have sent copies to all the secondary schools in the area and we have had a great response from them and the companies involved."

Broken down into industry categories and set out as a virtual careers fair with more than 30 companies taking part the CD-ROM is jam-packed with handy information.
