New Department of Labor Website

Posted: September 6, 2010 in Uncategorized

The U.S. Department of Labor has launched their new website to help job seekers match their skill-sets to occupational possibilities. The new site prompts the user to type in an occupation you’ve held and then a list of possible job categories are offered to look over that share some of the same skills. Along with that information, the site shows a salary range for jobs within that particular occupation and an option to click through and see what positions are available to you in and around a selected geographic region.

Although this type of career tool is available on many job boards, this site (at the very least) shows what jobs are ‘green’ sector jobs and it does diversify somewhat more than others.

I hope all of you will take some time to at least give it a try and see if there might be something there for you that you hadn’t considered before or perhaps help others decide if re-training might be a better option.
