My Next Move is an easy-to-use electronic tool that enables users to explore occupations and find related information, including job openings, job outlook information, salaries, apprenticeships, and other related education and training programs.
My Next Move uses information developed as part of the Occupational Information Network (O*NET) system. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration, O*NET is a comprehensive career information resource which collects data including the knowledge, skills, and abilities required by more than 900 occupations in the U.S. economy.
Through this new electronic tool, users can search for careers using key words, industries, or their work-related interests. They also can identify occupations in the green economy. The tool is written at a reading level that makes it accessible to everyone and is great for those who may be unfamiliar with computers and Internet sites.
The tool includes a new on-line, streamlined interest assessment with 60 questions about what an individual likes to do. Based on an individual’s interests and responses, the information gathered will be used to suggest potentially suitable occupations and careers.
