Are you looking for a change in your career?  Are you a student and not sure what you want to do for the rest of your life?  Are you looking to find a job that suits your interests better?


The ALIS website has information regarding new emerging occupations, even ones that many people may not have even considered.  All these occupations have details about what education is needed, what experience is valuable to have, and some even have information about how much you can expect to get paid.


There's a lot of details there, so check out their website to see if any of it interests you.
