The Occupational Outlook Handbook is the most widely respected and used career reference available—and only JIST Publishing's version includes useful bonus content, green job descriptions, and a new “Best OOH Jobs” list.
JIST's 2013–2014 edition of the OOH features well-written, interesting descriptions for 300 major jobs in the U.S., as well as summary information on additional jobs. For each job, the book discusses work tasks, job outlook through 2020, training and education needed, pay, work environment, similar occupations, and additional information sources. The book is packed with photos, charts, and practical, current information, which makes it invaluable for anyone doing career research, making career decisions, writing resumes, and preparing for interviews.
This OOH includes another JIST Publishing exclusive: the Personality-Career Quiz, which matches readers to specific OOH jobs. The quiz is based on the six RIASEC personality types: realistic, investigative, artistic, social, enterprising, and conventional. A special section, How Educators, Counselors, Librarians, and Business Professionals Can Best Use the OOH, is also included. JIST's version of the OOH also provides more current wage information than the online OOH provides.
