Occupational Outlook Handbook

The Occupational Outlook Handbook is a great place to get a summary on some of the facts about different careers in the United States.

For hundreds of different types of jobs—such as teacher, lawyer, and nurse—the Occupational Outlook Handbook tells you:

  • the training and education needed
  • earnings
  • expected job prospects
  • what workers do on the job
  • working conditions

You can use the handbook online by putting your search terms in the search box, or you can use the A-Z Index and see all the job titles available.
