The Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH), from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, provides a lot of job- and career-related information absolutely FREE. This site — which is regularly updated — is valuable for you no matter what stage of your career.
Here are just some of the types of information you can find at the site:
- Median pay by occupation [You can even find a list of jobs whose median pay is $75,000 or more.]
- Occupations by level of education
- Positions that entail on-the-job training
- The number of current jobs and job openings by occupation
- The growth rate of jobs by occupation — projected to 2022
You can also find information by looking up specific industries and types of occupations. For example, in the Business and Financial Occupations category alone, there are 20 different occupations included.
