Link Week - Occupational Outlook

So you're looking for a job or maybe a career, something long-term. You need information about different kind of jobs - what the work's like, training needed, etc. This site is tailor made! A sample search: click on the A-Z Index. Select the letter E. Recover from the amazement at seeing all the occupations listed: Earth drillers, except oil and gas to Extruding, forming, pressing, and compacting machine setters, operators, and tenders. Admit it, you didn't even know that second one existed. Let's pick something more general like Economist. Now your information choices are:

Nature of the Work
Training, Other Qualifications, and Advancement
Job Outlook
Projections Data
OES Data
Related Occupations

OK I don't know what OES is either, but if you need it you'll know it. Time to read everything you can possibly stand about the life of economists. And then some.
