Career Resources

WEF's Career Center offers an extensive library of resources to help aid in your job search and other aspects of career planning. Below, we have also provided a brief listing of several additional resources of interest for exploration and use. 

The Bureau of Labor Statistics is the principle fact-finding agency for the United States Government in the broad field of labor economics and statistics. They publish many useful resources:

Competency Model
Over the past year the American Water Works Association (AWWA) and the Water Environment Federation (WEF) worked to identify the occupation specific competencies required for workers in the Water Sector. In collaboration with the Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Water, the results of those efforts were formatted into a competency model using the framework provided by the Employment and Training Administration (ETA). The resulting model for the Water Sector, which depicts the core competencies required for field staff and operators, will be a resource for workforce developers and educators. AWWA and WEF have committed to promoting the model's use with their members and to keeping the model up to date.

Occupational Outlook Handbook
The Occupational Outlook Handbook provides information for hundreds of different types of jobs: job outlook & projections, earnings, training, qualifications & advancement, working conditions, etc.

Economic News Releases
Daily news releases with current statistical information on various economic topics: Employment & Unemployment, Inflation & Prices, Pay & Benefits, Productivity & Technology, along with news releases specific to various regions of the U.S.
