Where Are the Jobs Web Application
Where are the Jobs? allows users to interactively explore the salary and job statistics for various occupations at national, state and regional levels. Using the application, they can choose an occupation and explore the job market for that occupation, or they can start with a state or region and explore the top occupations within it. Where are the Jobs? provides context for the user by highlighting the geographic area, plotting the information on a graph for easy comparison and allowing the users to sort either by number of jobs or by salary. The application also provides information about the top industries providing employment in a given occupation.
We believe that this ability to interactively explore employment scenarios across different occupations and geographical areas will assist young men and women who are trying to choose a career, unemployed people who are getting ready to retrain themselves, or citizens and businesses that are planning to relocate to a different part of the country.
Where are the Jobs? uses data provided by the US Department of Labor and Bureau of Labor Statistics. At this time the data is from May 2010, however we have configured the system to allow easy upgrades as new data sets become available.
The application is an open source application, shared with community under Gnu Public License.
