Career guide online

Students, parents, guidance counselors and anyone wanting to learn more about career outlooks in occupations throughout Virginia can find a trove of useful information on the World Wide Web from U.Va.'s Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service.

From accountants and auto mechanics, to engineers and musicians, to park rangers and welders, the center's online "Guide to Career Prospects in Virginia" offers a full range of up-to-date background material and projections on dozens of occupations. Created by Cooper Center demographer Julia H. Martin and research associate Achsah H. Carrier, it is located at www.ccps. virginia.edu/career_prospects/

Each career is described in a detailed analysis that tells required educational levels, school subjects to take, special skills needed, working conditions, expected earnings levels and the job outlook for it in Virginia.
