At some point it does make sense for students to think about what their career plans are, what the prospects for jobs are in their intended field and so on. It can seem hard to find good information, but there are actually some helpful sites to use. One basic site every career planner should know about is the online edition of the Occupational Outlook Handbook from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Each entry on a career field tells about the training and education requirements, the job prospects, salary ranges and lots of other useful information. Librarian Jennifer Little maintains our research guide to career resources, an excellent place to continue your career research.
