How do I research an occupation?
I need information about requirements for a specific career, median salary, and projected growth. I would also like to get demographic details for the career. Where can I look?
For most careers, you can find information from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in the Occupational Outlook Handbook. The site has an annual report that includes median salaries, estimated number of jobs and projected job growth for the next decade.
The bureau also has a site that lists demographics for reported career fields.
