O*Net Online: Occupational Online Network
The O*NET program is the nation's primary source of occupational information. O*NET OnLine was developed for the U.S. Department of Labor by the National Center for O*NET Development.
Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor, this is a one stop-shop to explore careers, seek out educational requirements, search salary information, receive advice on resumes and interviews, and search for a job.
Educational and Career Counseling [Ferris Only]
For those students exploring career options, contemplating a career change or changing academic majors, the first stage is self-assessment. In this stage, you explore your interests, skills, values and personality preferences as they relate to possible career and education alternatives. Once you have learned more about yourself, you can use that self-knowledge to identify occupations and/or majors of potential interest to you.
For books, ebooks, and documents in the circulating collection (Main Stacks), use the Online Catalog. Search either using keyword or subject.

Interlibrary Loan is a service provided by FLITE to request articles and books that FLITE does not own. Most often this service is used when searching for articles in FLITE databases, and you are directed through the "Find It" button to request the item. The first time you use this service, you will need to register with ILLiad, our Inter-Library Loan service. Click on the words "First Time Users" to register. You will complete a form, creating a username and password which will be used for future requests. Article requests are emailed to you in 5-10 business days (ferris email preferred), and books will be mailed to you if you are an off-campus student. On-campus students may pick up books at the Checkout Desk.
