A good place to begin to research a career is the Occupational Outlook Handbook, which is published regularly by the U.S. Department of Labor. The Handbook profiles hundreds of occupations and dozens of industries.
You will discover the different types of nurses, the nature of the work, education and training required, licensure and certification, job outlook, earnings, related occupations, and sources of additional information.
The Occupational Outlook Handbook is available online and is also shelved on the Career and Job Information Table near the Information Services Desk. There you will find other sources to help you, such as The Encyclopedia of Careers and Vocational Guidance, Exploring Health Care Careers, Exploring Tech Careers, and many other titles.
Ferguson’s Career Guidance Center is a great online database that will provide info on more than 3,000 jobs in over 90 industries. You will need your St. Charles library card number and PIN to access this database.
Check out the library’s Job Search & Careers Research Guide. There are also many books you may checkout about careers.
