• Did you know that your level of education can influence what types of occupations you can readily apply for?


    According to the Occupational Information Network database, an occupation may request one of these levels of education:


    • Elementary school training or no training required

    • High school diploma or GED required

    • Some college or training required

    • College degree required

    • Advanced degree required


    O*NET allows you to search through career clusters and for specific occupations, and will let you know the levels of education required. O*NET gives thorough summary reports for occupations that include tasks, knowledge, skills, and abilities required, along with current information detailing wages and employment trends.
