America’s most widely used and dependable resource for career information is back. Like each edition before it, JIST’s Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2010–2011 (OOH), features well-written, interesting descriptions for nearly 270 major jobs in the U.S., plus summary information on additional jobs.
In each description, the book discusses the nature of the work, working conditions, job outlook through 2018, training and education needed, earnings, related occupations, and additional information sources, including Web sites. Packed with practical, current information, the OOH is a valuable resource for anyone doing career research, making career decisions, writing resumes, and preparing for interviews.
Known for timely and accurate publishing of this resource, JIST offers three exclusive bonus sections. Green jobs are overviewed and described in a new section. The Personality-Career Quiz helps readers match themselves to OOH jobs. This quiz is based on the six personality types: Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising, and Conventional. Also included is special content titled How Educators, Counselors, Librarians, and Business Professionals Can Best Use the OOH.
The OOH is useful to a wide variety of audiences, including job seekers, new graduates, students, career changers, working professionals, teachers, trainers, career counselors, librarians, and employers.
“Provides a wealth of information for people facing career changes, students deciding on career choices, and human resource personnel. Job seekers are given critical information.”
