01 August 2005 

During one-on-one sessions with high school kids, career changers, or patrons who want to know more about a specific career, I turn to the Occupational Outlook Handbook. Using their "Search OOH", I was curious to see what information they had about "Librarians". Put together by the US Dept. of Labor - Bureau of Labor Statistics, I can now walk patrons through the nature of the work, working conditions, training required, job outlook and (very important!) related occupations. A great place to get started before leaping into any occupation.
