Overview

Over 2,700 Job Descriptions Make This One of the Most Useful, Comprehensive Career Resources Available
  • Obtain up-to-date information on jobs, earnings, projected growth, and more.
  • Explore new career and job options.
  • Determine the education you need to enter a job.
  • Prepare resumes that effectively describe your skills and experience.
  • Prepare for promotion and upward mobility.
  • Conduct more effective job interviews and salary negotiations.
  • Write accurate job descriptions and identify specific skills needed in new hires.
Combines the Three Most Important Occupational Information Sources into One Book This book is the only reference that conveniently combines three important references:
  1. The standard career reference used by most career professionals is the Occupational Outlook Handbook. Updated every two years by the U.S. Department of Labor, the OOH provides thorough, easy-to-read descriptions for 253 major occupations covering 87 percent of the workforce.
  2. The Labor Department's new Occupational Information Network (O*NET) database covers more specific jobs and gives more detailed job information.
  3. The Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOT), another Labor Department reference, is the only source for a huge variety of very specific job titles.
Using these rich information sources together was not practical or convenient- until now. The Enhanced Occupational Outlook Handbook combines descriptions for all jobs from the OOH, 800 descriptions from the O*NET, and another 1,700 from the DOT—plus another 5,700 titles of more specific jobs from the DOT.

It's Big, But Very Easy-to-Use
Just use the table of contents to identify major jobs that interest you. Then turn to the page where that job is described. Go to Social Worker, for example, and you will find the complete description for that job from the current OOH. This material discusses the nature of the job, working conditions, education and experience required, potential earnings, skills required, and employment projections to 2008. This is followed by descriptions of one or more related jobs from the O*NET- and then even more specific descriptions and related titles from the DOT. With almost 2,700 job descriptions, this book is a powerful, thorough, and easy-to-use career reference tool.
