This tool, from the U.S. Department of Labor, provides a snapshot of your chances of finding a job in a particular field based on your education and experience, desired income level and preferred employment location. Use this tool to select an occupation and industry, a state and locality, an education level and a wage level. This information will be used to create your “employability profile” to help you make good career choices. After completing your profile you will be led to a list of job banks and job training resources in your state.
