There are two ways to navigate this tool:

  1. Keyword Search: Search for the title of the job you’re looking to pursue, or skills you may have that could be relevant for a particular career path.
  2. Narrow Down by Industry + Occupation: If you have a general sense of the industry you’d like to pursue, you can narrow down the occupations within a given industry to help you decide.

First, choose an industry of interest, then filter for occupation. (If you'd like to see data for a specific location only, filter by state.)

Type in a keyword to select a relevant occupation. (If you'd like to see data for a specific location only, filter by state.)
