His basic unit of work is “Skill”. It’s a thick book — any version will do. I looked at it in the 1980s, then a few times in the 1990s, then a few times in the 00s. He updates it every year, but it’s basically the same. Might be dead by now, but he knows the American job market and how it thinks like nobody else. It’s all he did. One book, updated every year.

If you’re looking for “What career is best for me?” Take the MAPP. I haven’t looked at it since 2002 when I took it. I paid for it and it’s the only test worth paying for. It accurately identified my #1 career.
 
If it was good in 2002, it’ll be good in 2020. oh! It’s got a free thing. Yeah, I’d say do it, see what it says.
 
I came up as “Special Education, Middle School” job which is 100% what I ought to be. Special Ed includes gifted and slow students alike.
