Career Resources

Volunteer tutors can use this tool to help their students select careers. A tutor could use the articles to kickoff a language experience story (LES).  This can be used with low level learners and with English Lanugage Learners.

Career Information Center
Check out this lastest addition to Gale Virtual Reference Library (GVRL), available to your patrons through the Florida Electronic Library (FEL).

Career Information Center, 10th edition provides the most current information available on careers in the United States and Canada, to people of all ages and all stages of career development. Each volume covers a career cluster and its common career pathways. Job profiles cover the following: job facts; nature of work; work environment; education; licenses; certification and training; job outlook; similar occupations; and sources of additional information, such as books, audio/visual materials and organizations.

GVRL is a database of encyclopedias, and specialized reference sources, for multidisciplinary research. Your patrons can access these reference materials online from the library, or remotely through the FEL.
