An excellent resource for information about occupations and professions is The Occupational Outlook Handbook. This handbook is a career guide provided by the U.S. Government's Bureau of Labor Statistics. It provides information on a wide range of occupations. For each profession, it describes what workers do on the job, working conditions, the training and education needed, earnings, and expected job prospects. This summer is a great time for students to explore online potential career pathways that may be of interest. To access the online service click the link below.
