Occupational Outlook Handbook

The United States Department of Labor has a valuable career resource called the Occupational Outlook Handbook, which can also be accessed through their new app. This online resource allows a person to search for job types by levels of education, on-the-job training, new job projections, job growth and pay. You can also search by categories. These are not job listings, instead the resource gives information on the career. Check out their information on plumbing jobs.
