O*NET® Products at Work

New York CareerZone external site from New York State Department of Labor external site

Designed by the State Department of Labor, the New York CareerZone Web site is an O*NET delivery system that has revolutionized the way New Yorkers access career information. The NYCareerZone system is now a statewide resource for teachers, counselors, and career center staff. The system engages students and job seekers in career exploration and helps them develop their skills in career planning. Users build electronic portfolios linked to state learning objectives and O*NET-SOC occupational information. NYCareerZone developers incorporated the O*NET Interest Profiler and Skills Search capabilities into the portfolios to help students identify their interests and relate these interests to appropriate career possibilities. Using job profiles drawn from the O*NET database, students can explore specific occupations. The profiles include state-specific wage and outlook information related to the O*NET-SOC occupations and include a link to a state college database.
