INTERNET SITES FOR CAREER PLANNING

These links include many resources, services, and tools which assist users in exploring careers, planning for the future, searching for employment, and finding the additional training necessary to pursue a dream. Most of these resources are free, and several were developed in countries other than the United States. This is a mere sample of what is available online, but it can serve as a starting point for career counselors or for career-seekers.

 

The following links are from the book, The Internet: A Tool for Career Planning, (Third Edition, 2011) by Debra S. Osborn, Margaret Riley Dikel, & James P. Sampson, Jr. The authors granted permission for use by NCDA. [Note: These links were updated in July 2015].

We have reached the end of a century-long economic period that was dominated by big businesses offering essentially identical products. The Hollywood model is now used to build bridges, design apps or start restaurants. (New York Times, May 10, 2015)
