A featured resource of the day: O*NET!
O*NET is a treasure trove of useful information for the job seeker or potential career changer. This resource is fascinating and extremely useful (and can be a lot of fun!). Never heard of it? Heard of it but never used it? Visit http://www.onetonline.org today!
O*NET is a free online database that contains hundreds of detailed descriptions of the world of work in the United States for use by job seekers, businesses, workforce development and HR professionals, students, researchers, and more.
"The O*NET program is the nation's primary source of occupational information. Central to the project is the O*NET database, containing information on hundreds of standardized and occupation-specific descriptors. The database, which is available to the public at no cost, is continually updated by surveying a broad range of workers from each occupation. Information from this database forms the heart of O*NET OnLine, an interactive application for exploring and searching occupations. The database also provides the basis for our Career Exploration Tools, a set of valuable assessment instruments for workers and students looking to find or change careers."
