This online resource from the Bureau of Labor Statistics offers information about hundreds of careers, including entry level education requirements, median pay, projected number of new jobs, and job growth rates.  

One can also find e-books related to specific careers.  Try a search in ebrary using search terms for your career of choice (career nurse or nursing, for example).

Journal and magazine articles about careers can be found in Associates Programs Source Plus, an EBSCOhost collection of publications.  Try searching for information about the career of you choice there as well.

We hope these resources prove helpful to you.
