One of my favorite sites about employment, job forecasts, and earnings is the Bureau Of Labor Statistics’ Occupational Outlook Handbook. This is a free online publication put out by the US Dept. Of Labor.
How Can You Use It? This site is a wealth of information right at your finger tips. For hundreds of different types of jobs, the Occupational Outlook Handbook gives you job specific information on:
- the training and education needed
- expected job prospects
- job duties and responsibilities
- working conditions
If you are researching a new career, put in the keyword of job title and equip yourself with the information you need to decide if this is the right career for you. If you are considering a new job or asking for a raise, this site can help you when you take into account the normal working conditions and earnings.
Your Tax Dollars At Work Sure…there are plenty of government programs that you may never benefit from, however this is an online resource that is a great use of our tax dollars. Having all this information available to you allows you to make an informed and logical decision. Use this resource, and use it often!Jay Markunas is a Career Coach, and is a big fan of online research tools.
