What Can I Do With This Major? includes information on hundreds of academic majors, associated career areas, examples of employers, and strategies to make you a more marketable candidate.

Maintained by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, “the Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH) is a career resource offering information on the hundreds of occupations that provide the majority of jobs in the United States. Each occupational profile describes the typical duties performed by the occupation, the work environment of that occupation, the typical education and training needed to enter the occupation, the median pay for workers in the occupation, and the job outlook for the next 10 years for that occupation. Each profile is in a standard format that makes it easy to compare occupations.”
