Occupational Outlook Handbook

  • Occupational Outlook Handbook (Government website)
    "For hundreds of different types of jobs—such as teacher, lawyer, and nurse—the Occupational Outlook Handbook tells you: the training and education needed, earnings, expected job prospects, what workers do on the job, working conditions. In addition, the Handbook gives you job search tips, links to information about the job market in each State, and more. You can also view frequently asked questions about the Handbook."
  • OOH - Green Careers
    Subset of job descriptions that specifically deal with alternative energy and sustainable development movements

You may find these professional websites on the "Websites" tab of any "Library Subject Guides", or you might do a google search with your career and the words "association" "academy" ... some sample sites are listed below:
