How do I find out more about occupations that seem interesting?

Once you have some occupational titles in mind, there’s quite a bit of good information available on the Internet. Two good options are:

  • The Occupational Outlook Handbook - This is the industry standard, compiled and maintained by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. It lists hundreds of occupations, each including sections on Nature of the Work, Training, Job Outlook, and Earnings.
  • California Occupational Guides - The data contained in this site are similar to the OOH (above), but the labor market information is specifically for jobs in California.
  • In addition, our Career Resource Room is filled with printed material on hundreds of occupations. Our friendly student peers and professional staff will be happy to help you find what you need, whether in print or on the web.

Our Career Resource Room has 24 computers available for you to use.
