Web Tip: Skills Site to Job Leads (October-November 2010)
By Karen Litzinger, MA, LPC

A new Department of Labor web site lets you put in your job title and identify job titles that use similar skills. Check out www.myskillsmyfuture.com. Then it leads you to job opportunities in those fields which you can search by geographic radius. A link takes you to skill clusters which can also help you market yourself. Within 5 minutes I found a lead I could see applying for... if I didn't love what I do so much!
