Woods, James F.; And Others
This paper examines what the World Wide Web has to offer persons who work in education, employment and training, and career development. The guide is designed for the following purposes: (1) to provide "hot lists" of significant career and occupational information resources on the Web, with brief descriptions of what they offer and information on how to find them quickly; (2) to present online specific strategies and techniques to use in exploring the Web for topics and sites of interest; (3) to encourage greater use of the Web to obtain resources that might not be available or accessible in other ways; (4) to encourage users to evaluate Internet resources, based on their needs and applications, to determine their usefulness and appropriateness; and (5) to introduce beginning users to some pertinent Internet concepts and terminology. The guide is organized in three chapters. Chapter 1 briefly introduces key concepts and tools that will help the reader to go online. Chapter 2 provides a concise but wide-ranging list of job search and career information and career development Web sites. Chapter 3 explores some sites that feature labor market, economic, and education data. (KC)
