Once you’ve arrived at a solid list of possible job titles that interest you and for which you believe you are somewhat qualified, it’s a good idea to do some research on each of these jobs. The preeminent source for such job information
is the Dictionary of Occupational Titles, or DOT (wave.net/upg/immigration/dot_index.html). This directory lists every conceivable job and provides excellent up-to-date information on duties and responsibilities, interactions with associates, and day-to-day assignments and tasks. These descriptions provide a thorough job analysis, but they do not consider the possible employers or the environments in which a job may be performed. So, although a position as public relations officer may be well defined in terms of duties and responsibilities, it does not explain the differences in doing public relations work in a college or a hospital or a factory or a bank. You will need to look somewhere else for work settings.
