People who are out of work or contemplating a new career often feel overwhelmed.  They don’t know how or where to look for work.  Rather than going directly to one of the big job boards like Monster or Career Builder, try a different path.  Consider the kind of jobs that are available and how they fit your interests, experience, and skill.

O*Net Online is a service provided by the Department of Labor.  It offers three search tools to explore different occupations.  Once you’ve select an area, you will see projections of future job growth. 

It takes a little time to figure out how to use O*Net.  The payoff is worth the effort, especially if you are thinking about how you can market your experience and skills to a new employer.
