The Occupational Outlook Handbook, which is an annual publication of the U.S. Department of Labor, contains answers to questions such as:

  • What kinds of careers are available to people who obtain a degree in a certain field, subject, or area of study?
  • What are the responsibilities in those careers, and what are the typical working conditions, pay, and benefits?
  • Is the industry is growing, holding steady, or declining, and what parts of the country or world are best for job prospects in that industry?

For more information about particular careers and occupations, try the Vocational and Careers Collection available through the SUNY Empire Online Library.

For information pertaining to how to select a career and pursue a job (including writing your resume, interviewing, and negotiating your salary and benefits) visit the library's Career Guide.
