Book Description: The New Guide for Occupational Exploration is the most useful resource for matching interests to both job and learning options. As a major revision of the career resource previously titled the Guide for Occupational Exploration, this easy-to-use book is now based on the 16 U.S. Department of Education clusters that connect learning to careers. Readers can drill down to their most appealing job groups through questions that provide a feel for the work and whether it will interest them. The unique format of the New Guide for Occupational Exploration takes readers from broad interest areas to specific careers. More than 900 job descriptions from the U.S. Department of Labor’s O*NET (Occupational Information Network) database emphasize skills needed, related courses, education required, earnings, growth, and much more, all for helpful career-path planning. The New Guide for Occupational Exploration builds on solid research that supports exploring careers based on interests. For more than 25 years, the GOE has served as a key reference for helping people discover career and learning options.
