I love Google! It is a great resource for information and personal enrichment. Can you hear the but coming? But please be careful with the information you find through your searches. Anyone can publish a website online and there's no guarantee the information is accurate. Double check any information you find.
For more information on double checking online information, check out the library's handout ABC3 of Website Evaluation.
Now that we have reviewed the resources offered by the library and Valencia, let's take a look at two websites that focus on career research.
I suggest visiting these two first:
The Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH) is a career resource offering information on the hundreds of occupations that provide the majority of jobs in the United States. Each occupational profile describes the typical duties performed by the occupation, the work environment of that occupation, the typical education and training needed to enter the occupation, the median pay for workers in the occupation, and the job outlook over the coming decade for that occupation. Each profile is in a standard format that makes it easy to compare occupations, such as by projected employment change.
O*NET OnLine has detailed descriptions of the world of work for use by job seekers, workforce development and HR professionals, students, researchers, and more! Browse groups of similar occupations to explore careers.
