Career Exploration: Occupational Outlook Handbook

Career Exploration: Occupational Outlook Handbook


If you’re researching different careers, the
Occupational Outlook Handbook can help by giving you access to thousands of detailed
job profiles. You can find information about salary, work environment, career outlook,
and more. To get started, you’ll need to search for
a job title. If you’re not sure what to search for, try
the A-Z Index found on the homepage. This will take you to a list of every job on the
site, organized alphabetically. You can also use the search box near the top
of the screen to search for a specific job title. In this example, we’re going to search
for “physical therapist.” Click the Go button… and you’ll be taken
to a list of jobs that match your search terms. To learn more about a job, click the one you’re
interested in. On this page, you’ll find a wide variety of
information, starting with a summary of the job. This includes the median pay… education
requirements… and various other facts at-a-glance. You can click one of these links to view the
page in detail, or use the tabs near the top of the page. Let’s take a look at some of the most important
tabs. Under What They Do, the handbook will give
you a list of typical duties for this job, and more information about the nature of the
work. This tab is important because it really gives you a sense of what the position is
like, and whether or not it’s going to be a good fit for you. The tab labeled How to Become One is also
useful. This page can help you figure if you’re qualified for the position, or if you’ll need
additional training or education. It can even help you assess personal qualities that might
be important; for example, compassion, interpersonal skills, or physical stamina. The Pay tab will tell you how much this job
typically pays. Your salary may vary depending on where you live, where you work, and if
you’re just starting out in your career. In that case, your earnings may be slightly lower
than the median annual wage. The Job Outlook tab will give you insight
to employment trends, and how difficult it might be to get this type of job. It also
talks about what the prospects will be like over the next few years, which is an important
thing to consider when you’re planning for your future. If you’d like to learn about a different job,
you can scroll back to the top of the page, and type something else in the search box. You don’t even have to search by job title;
you can also search by keyword. So if you’d like to explore careers that’ll let you work
with animals, for example, you can type “animals” in the search box… and see if any of the
search results are what you had in mind. These are just a few examples of the type
of information you can find in the Occupational Outlook Handbook. It’s a great site for learning
about different careers, so I highly recommend using it in your research.
