Occupational Outlook Handbook

The Bureau of Labor Statistics recently updated their Occupational Outlook Handbook. This is a great tool that can be used by your students to research different careers. Each career includes an overview/summary and can be searched by 2014 Median Pay, Entry-Level Education, On-the-job Training, Number of new jobs (projected) and Growth rate (projected).

There are also ways to search by highest paying jobs. It is a fantastic tool. Here is a link you can share with your students: Occupational Outlook Handbook
