New Website Helps Users Research Careers

Deciding what to do when you grow up is daunting. There are so many choices, and so little information about specific jobs. Until now. A new website, Inside Jobs, attempts to catalogue jobs and provide in-depth information about the education, skills and career pathing for a wide variety of jobs. The job profiles are written in clear, jargon-free language. Salary ranges, and even occupational outlook information is provided when available. Links to Wikipedia definitions and Bureau of Labor Statistics information are also incorporated into profiles.

The site is free for users. Advertisers -- mainly educational institutions --pay to attract students' attention.

Some jobs, such as infographic designer, even incorporate entertaining videos into the profile. The design is sleek and simple. The information is as rich as I've seen anywhere. This could easily become an invaluable resource to jobseekers, teachers, career changers and anyone looking for a way to explore new careers.
