<ul><li> 1. RESOURCES FOR CAREER INFORMATION REFERENCE GUIDE October, 2005This reference guide, developed by the Iowa Labor Market Information (LMI) Project, will help you to use Labor Market Information in career planning and education. Youll find resources for such information as the skills and education needed for specific jobs, training opportunities, curriculum ideas, and lesson plans. The reference guide is arranged alphabetically by topic, enabling you to find various sources for the items you may need. A sampling of resources has been included. Information from Americas Career InfoNet and the Iowa Workforce Development Labor Market Information Bureau are featured, but many other resources are also listed. Inclusion in this resource guide does not mean that the web site or resource is endorsed by the Iowa LMI Project. You likely have many resources not included in this particular guide and will no doubt discover additional ones as you explore web sites and publications. Please make notes in this guide to personalize it for your own use. This guide was last updated on 7/21/2005 however sites do change with little warning. Please be aware of that and notify Charlotte Rashid of any changes or problems. Her phone number is (563) 336-3471. Her e-mail address is Charlotte.Rashid@iwd.state.ia.us. If you would like to customize this guide to include your own local resources, contact Charlotte and she will send you the Word document.1 </li></ul><p> 2.
