Job & Career Accelerator
After a one time registration, users can complete a profile and take an “occupation matcher” test to create a personalized experience. In addition to in depth career information like education required, average salary, and projected job growth, Job & Career Accelerator also has tools to help with creating resumes and cover letters, navigating the interview process, and popular technology tutorials.
Testing & Education Reference Center
TERC contains over 300 practice tests and courses, including high school tests (AP, TAKS), college entrance exams (ACT, SAT), graduate school entrance exams (GRE, MCAT, LSAT, GMAT), and career-specific training and testing materials for fields like accounting, medical/nursing, and teaching. In addition to tests, the Testing & Education Reference Center also contains tools to search for colleges and scholarships, to build your resume, and information on obtaining U.S. citizenship.

In your library: Career / Test Preparation Collection
Did you know the Lee College library has a special section just for career and test preparation books? You can find it next to the reference desk in the back of the library or browse it virtually in our online catalog. Don’t overlook the Careers Reports on the top shelf. Each booklet contains information on a specific career, with over 400 careers represented!
Occupational Outlook Handbook
Published by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Occupational Outlook Handbook contains detailed information on specific jobs in the United States. Each job section contains median salary, education required, number of jobs, expected growth, similar occupations, and links to additional information. The handbook is available in the reference section of the library and electronically. The online edition allows browsing by occupation groups, highest pay jobs, fastest growing jobs, and also has a search feature to narrow down relevant jobs.
My Next Move
Another excellent government resource, My Next Move is an interactive tool for both students starting their careers and anyone looking for employment. With career outlook information, salary statistics, and local state information from the Bureau of Labor Statistic, this site has a wealth of information on over 900 careers. In addition, My Next Move allows for browsing by industry as well as incorporating an “interest profiler” which can help you find careers that fit your interests.
