O*NET Overview

The O*NET system serves as the nation's primary source of occupational information, providing comprehensive information on key attributes and characteristics of workers and occupations. Central to the project is the O*NET database, containing information on hundreds of standardized and occupation-specific descriptors collected by federal agencies such as the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The database is continually updated by surveying a broad range of workers from each occupation. Information from this freely available database forms the heart of O*NET OnLine, the interactive application for exploring and searching occupations.

ResumeTutor!© - University of Minnesota

ResumeTutor!© is a program designed to walk individuals through the steps of formatting resumes. It provides information about how different resumes are structured, how to write the different sections, and how to evaluate what has been written.

ResumeTutor!© won't write the resume. It is much more important for people to learn how to put resumes together than to actually do it for them. ResumeTutor!© will provide examples of how the information could look.

Remember, "one size" does not fit all when it comes to resumes. Depending on the type of position for which the individual is applying, the individual's experience and education, work history, and personal achievements, people will find that different formats may be more appropriate to use. Individual's may even use two or three resumes regularly, depending on how he/she wishes to present your information.
