Career Exploration and the Occupational Outlook Handbook

For Career Planners, nothing can be more important that Career Exploration. I consider the exploration process to be the most important part of finding the right path. It is like gift shopping when you don't know what to buy. The more you look the more likely something is to jump out at you and say, "This is it!" The best career exploration tool I have ever found is the US Department of Labor's Occupational Outlook Handbook. It is the most comprehensive listing of careers and has follow up info that will show career planners/explorers what the career is all about and how to get there. See and let me know what you think.

  1. Great idea Gary, so many young people and displaced workers don't have a clue where to turn or how to make use of their time most efficiently. Hope this takes off!
