Career Planning Resources Online

SAN MATEO (07/31/2000) - CareerBuilder Inc. - www.careerbuilder.comWhat you'll find: The site includes a fairly robust selection of career-related articles and resources, including a special area devoted to IT professionals.

What you won't: CareerBuilder doesn't have many weaknesses, but there is little material related to high-level management issues.

The essentials: Although the site is fairly commercial, it holds plenty of original content. CareerBuilder is being acquired by Knight Ridder and Tribune Media.

Career Services Group Inc.'s CareerPerfect.com - www.careerperfect.comWhat you'll find: The site provides IT skills assessment testing, links to salary surveys, relocation tools, and career planning resources.

What you won't: The site largely focuses on offering fee-based career-related tools rather than job-hunting tips. Advertisements on the site are not obtrusive.

The essentials: The site uses a no-nonsense approach to presentation, but it is not the most comprehensive career site available.

Occupational Outlook Handbook - www.bls.gov/ocohome.htmWhat you'll find: Comprehensive career information categorized by occupation and government projections on future career trends are found at this federal government site.

What you won't: There are no ads, no opinion columns, no tips, and no links to external Web sites. Basically the site has no personality, but plenty of raw information.

The essentials: This handbook is published annually by the U.S. Department of Labor. The report contains a treasure trove of facts and statistics.
