Before working for a new company or starting on a new career path, a little research goes a long way to helping you find the right match. Here are some resources to get you started:
- The Business page features resources selected by Multnomah County Library reference staff on businesses and nonprofits, including many reserarch tools for industry information.
- The Bureau of Labor Statistics is developed by the U.S. Department of Labor and includes information about a variety of professions and where they are availkable in the United States. Make sure to check out the Occupational Outlook Handbook for trends with specific jobs.
- The Oregon Labor Market Information System (OLMIS) is produced by the Oregon Employment Department and it tracks Oregon employment trends and provides links to job listings and other services for employers and job seekers.
