Resources for Career Options


O*NET is the US Department of Labor'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 is the heart of O*NET OnLine, an interactive application for exploring and searching occupations. The database also provides the foundation for our Career Exploration Tools, a set of valuable assessment instruments for workers and students looking to find or change careers.
