The purpose of this site is to provide people with a simple, easy to understand explanation of how someone can advance through a particular career.

What is a Career Starter?

A career starter is a collection of information designed to provide readers with an idea of the skills, education, tasks and work conditions that are involved in a particular occupation or career. The career starter provides important information to help the reader understand what is needed to start a career, and what is needed to advance in that career path.

Our career starters are specific to a county in the central valley and provide information based on the location. This includes the wages one can expect to earn in that area.


The O*NET Program is the nation’s primary source of occupational information. Valid data are essential to understanding the rapidly changing nature of work and how it impacts the workforce and U.S. economy. From this information, applications are developed to facilitate the development and maintenance of a skilled workforce.

Central to the project is the O*NET database, containing hundreds of standardized and occupation-specific descriptors on almost 1,000 occupations covering the entire U.S. economy. The database, which is available to the public at no cost, is continually updated from input by a broad range of workers in each occupation.

O*NET information is used by millions of individuals every year, including those taking advantage of O*NET Online, My Next Move, and other publicly and privately developed applications. The data have proven vital in helping people find the training and jobs they need, and employers the skilled workers necessary to be competitive in the marketplace.

The Occupational Information Network (O*NET) is developed under the sponsorship of the U.S. Department of Labor/Employment and Training Administration (USDOL/ETA) through a grant to the North Carolina Department of Commerce.
