Celebrate career well-being

During the holidays, we reflect on what’s important to us: family, friends, and the opportunities throughout the year to help others. For career and education counselors like us, we’re lucky that also includes what we do for work.
Career well-being is feeling good about the work you do.  It’s answering, “yes” to the question, “Do you like what you do each day?”   Thank you for helping those you serve get on the path to career-well-being – a mission Career Key shares.
Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to you and your family from ours!

The new Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH) for 2016-2018 is out!  A major highlight is the addition of  state/regional information to each occupation profile. Career Key uses the OOH as its primary source of career information.
New U.S. employment projections and job outlook are also out; our next newsletter will look at what impact these projections have on our career advice.
