What are the videos?
The Video Library provides a brief visual introduction to careers, career clusters, industries, and related topics.
Career videos: There are approximately 520 career videos that describe typical work tasks and settings, education requirements, and helpful qualities for approximately 1,000 different occupations. Some closely related occupations are grouped together so that a single video may profile more than one occupation. Each career video is approximately 90 seconds in length. Spanish language translations are available.
Career cluster / industry videos: Career clusters refer to groups of occupations with related skills, while industries refer to groups of businesses or organizations that share similar activities or products. These videos show the relationship of groups of occupations to the types of organizations that employ them. There are two videos for each of the featured career clusters / industries: the first is an overview of the industry's functions, size, and trends, while the second video provides a description of occupations available at different levels of education and training in that cluster.
Who created the videos?
The career videos and career cluster / industry videos were developed by CareerOneStop. Career video content is based on data from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics website Occupational Outlook Handbook and O*NET OnLine, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor's Employment and Training Administration (USDOLETA).
Career cluster / industry videos reference data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The video creation platform, WOCHIT, was used to produce the career videos and career cluster / industry videos.
Other videos were developed and distributed by the Center for Occupational Employment Information (COEI) under a grant from America's Labor Market Information System (ALMIS), a program of the USDOLETA.
