Start With Career Clusters to Help Choose Your Career Direction

From CareerOneStop.org, part of the CareerOneStop suite of web products, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration.

Changing careers

Career clusters are groups of related types of work. They give you an easy way to explore different kinds of jobs within one broad category. Start with one of the clusters—like health care or construction—to learn what it involves, current trends, and the different careers it offers.

It’s often easier to change jobs and advance within a career cluster. Identifying with a cluster can help you build your career and choose credentials—such as a college degree, specialized training, or certifications—that will qualify you for a variety of different, but related, jobs.

What’s the difference between a career cluster and an industry?

Industries are groups of businesses that have related activities or products. Where career clusters include a variety of careers that share similar knowledge, skills, and interests, industries include many unrelated careers. The career cluster / industry videos show the industries and types of organizations that typically employ workers in each career cluster.

Visit Career cluster / industry videos to learn about eight key industry/career cluster groups:

  • Architecture and Construction
  • Energy
  • Finance
  • Health Science
  • Hospitality and Tourism
  • Manufacturing
  • Telecommunications
  • Transportation, Distribution, and Logistics
