Career Fields


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.
  • The Occupational Outlook Handbook is a very useful guide, produced by the U.S. Department of Labor, with basic information about the most common career fields, job trends, educational requirements and more.
  • 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.
