Whether you’re looking for a new occupation or just getting started in your career, it helps to know what you can expect. What do engineers earn? What kind of education do entry-level cooks need? What’s it like to be a truck driver? Our updated CareerInfo app puts that information in the palm of your hand.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Office of the Chief Information Officer recently updated the CareerInfo app with additional content. The app – available from the Apple App Store and Google Play – presents information from the Occupational Outlook Handbook, the most popular BLS resource for career information.
The CareerInfo app helps you find detailed data and information about employment, pay, job outlook, how to get started, work environment and more for hundreds of detailed occupations. You can browse by occupational groups and titles or search by occupation or keywords. Within occupational groups, the app allows you to sort by occupation title, projected growth, and typical education or median pay. You also now can browse top lists such as top paying, fastest growing, and most new jobs!
Future updates will let you personalize the app by filtering searches and by liking, saving, viewing and comparing favorites.
Check out the new CareerInfo app and explore the occupational information and data produced by BLS. You’ll be glad you did!
