Career exploration Tools
We provide current Labor Market Information for in-demand occupations, pay scales, career options, required education and training/skill levels, working conditions, future demand of occupations, information on companies and organizations, as well as a multitude of other data on local, national, or international markets.
Planning for a new, different, or better career can feel overwhelming. The more you know about your skills and preferences, the more prepared you are to search for jobs that are a good fit, write resumes, present yourself to potential employers in interviews, and find the career that best suits you.
It is important to research careers that match your interests, skills, values, and talents. As you explore, you will begin to identify which occupations are most appealing to you.
Focus your efforts on gathering more detailed information about these specific jobs to narrow down your options for potential career paths. You may discover jobs that you have not considered or even knew existed.
After you narrow down the occupation options that are most appealing to you, it is time to decide which occupation is the best fit for you based on what you now know about yourself and the occupations you’ve researched.
-Do you have the education, training, credentials, and experience that are required?
If the answer is No, what do you need to obtain? Determine what you are missing, then make a plan to address and fill in the gaps.
