Free Career App to Find a Career That's Right for You

In January of this year, we wrote about a new app, CareerInfo, designed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) for career exploration. This week the newest version of the CareerInfo app was released with new career content.

If you are wanting to make a career change or are currently job hunting or are a student needing to choose a major and career direction, this is a tool you can use to explore the occupations that best fit you!  The CareerInfo App can widen your vision as you explore careers that you have little knowledge about.  And of course, you can only choose from the careers that you are aware of!

The CareerInfo App can also have an impact on your salary as it helps you discover the appropriate salary range for your career.  Many of our clients have used this information to negotiate higher salaries.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that the CareerInfo app “helps you find information about employment, pay, job outlook, education and training requirements, and more for hundreds of detailed occupations. You can browse occupational groups and titles or search by occupation or keywords. Within occupational groups, the app allows you to sort by occupation title, projected growth, and typical education or median pay. You also now can browse top lists such as top paying, fastest growing, and most new jobs! Each occupational profile now includes more detailed information on what they do, work environment, how to become one, pay, and job outlook.”

You can search “Occupational Groups."

Learn more about occupations of interest including the salary range and potential for growth.


And learn about the education needed, related jobs and much more.


The updated app is now available from the App Store and Google PlayCareerInfo presents information from the Occupational Outlook Handbook, the most popular BLS resource for career information.
