The United States government maintains several websites which provide helpful information to jobseekers and others who want to investigate career fields:

  • O*NET OnLine was conceived by the U.S. Department of Labor to be the definitive resource for counselors, educators, human resource specialists, and the general public to learn more about occupations.
  • America’s Labor Market Information System, CareerOneStop, is a collection of sites that help people find jobs and learn about careers. It includes America’s Job Bank and Career InfoNet.
The O*NET program is the nation’s primary source of occupational information. Central to the project is the O*NET database, containing information on hundreds of standardized and occupation-specific descriptors. The database, which is available to the public at no cost, is continually updated by surveying a broad range of workers from each occupation. Information from this database forms the heart of O*NET OnLine, an interactive application for exploring and searching occupations. The database also provides the basis for their Career Exploration Tools, a set of valuable assessment instruments for workers and students looking to find or change careers.
