15.5 Choosing a Career Path (L.O. 1) Many people know amazingly little about the work done in various occupations and the training requirements. Your Task Use the online Occupational Outlook Handbook at http://www.bls.gov/ooh, prepared by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), to learn more about an occupation of your choice. This is the nation’s premier source for career information. The career profiles featured cover hundreds of occupations and describe what people in these occupations do, the work environment, how to get these jobs, how much they earn, and more. Each profile also includes BLS employment projections for the 2010–2020 decade. Find the description of a position for which you could apply in two to five years. Learn about what workers do on the job, working conditions, training and education needed, earnings, and expected job prospects. Print the pages from the Occupational Outlook Handbook that describe employment in the area in which you are interested. If your instructor directs, attach these copies to the cover letter you will write in Activity 15.10. 15.6 Locating Salary Information (L.O. 1) What salary can you expect in your chosen career?
