Great career exploration web site

The US Dept. of Labor has a great site for students to use to explore careers. There are games and quizzes to learn about careers and statistics, student resources and a teacher's desk. The student resources include career exploration, economic information, charts and tables and a glossary.

It is very easy to use and provides a new way for students to explore potential careers. There is also a teacher's section and you can look at the careers in different lists. Not every career is here, but many are and the teacher or counselor can help the student find others.

Another good site from the DOL is the Occupational Outlook Handbook. The OOH has information on different careers such as the employment outlook, education requirements, working conditions, and more.

These are great resources to use to help students explore different careers, as well as learn about the economy and statistics.
