The Occupational Outlook Handbook is a publication of the United States Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics that includes information about the nature of work, working conditions, training and education, earnings, and job outlook for hundreds of different occupations. The Handbook is released biennially with its companion publication the Career Guide to Industries. The previous 2012-2013 edition was released in November 2012 and the current edition, 2014-2015 version, was released in March 2014.

The Handbook is available for free on the Bureau of Labor Statistics Website [1], where there is easy searchability, browsing options, and an alphabetical index.

The Handbook gives job search tips, links to information about the job market in each State, and more.

Because the Occupational Outlook Handbook is a U.S. government publication it is not under copyright and is reproduced in various forms by other publishers, with additional information or features.[1] The first edition of the handbook was published in 1948.[2]
