The OOH is the most widely respected and used career reference available. It features well-written, interesting descriptions for nearly 270 major jobs in the U.S. and summary information on additional jobs. For each job, the book discusses the nature of the work, working conditions, job outlook, training and education needed, earnings, related occupations, and additional information sources, including Web sites. The book is packed with photos and practical, current information, which makes it invaluable for anyone doing career research, making career decisions, writing resumes, and preparing for interviews. Our version of the OOH is less expensive than the government's printing.

New self-assessment section in this edition - a JIST Publishing exclusive: Personality-Career Quiz for matching yourself to the OOH jobs. The quiz is based on the six personality types--Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising, and Conventional. Also included is special content by the Editors at JIST titled How Educators, Counselors, Librarians, and Business Professionals Can Best Use the OOH.
