Occupational Outlook Handbook and O*NET

The Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH) is a must-use source for researching careers and for any student in IAS 300.  Its strength is the amount of detail provided, including:

  • What people in specific careers and jobs do;
  • The work environment; 
  • What one needs to do to become a professional or worker in a particular field; 
  • The pay and the future outlook for specific jobs and careers.

OOH is your first stop in career research.  START HERE!

There are three ways to find occupations in OOH.  Look for the sections outlined in red below:

  • The search box (upper right);
  • Occupation Groups (left); and
  • A-Z Index (middle).
