Summary

The Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH) has come a long way since its first edition in the 1940s -- replete with positions fueled by a wartime economy. One thing has not changed, however: For more than 50 years, the OOH has been respected as the job seeker's number one source of critical decision-making information. From aerospace engineer to water treatment plant operator, the latest edition spans more than 250 occupations, encompassing nearly 90 percent of the jobs in the U.S. economy.
-- An indispensable resource for new graduates and anyone investigating a career change
-- Easiest way to locate growing fields and avoid fields with declining employment numbers
