The mere mention of the US Department of Labor's Occupational Outlook Handbook may remind some individuals of those infamous high school vocational surveys. Some may even remember that such surveys indicated that they would go on to careers in forestry, animal husbandry, or even as a particle physicist. Recently, the Department of Labor issued this tremendously useful Handbook in its online format, and for those looking for a new career, or those who are just starting out, it provides a wealth of helpful facts. Basic information for hundreds of jobs is made available in the Handbook, including such details as the training and education required for each position, along with expected earnings, future job prospects, and information on working conditions. Additionally, users can look at sections that provide suggestions on how to evaluate a job offer, and a section on the methodology used to prepare the Handbook.
