When I went to the cite, I first selected the Explore Careers section and saw that there were assessments available; since I am currently also taking psychometrics: test and measurements, I was interested in this feature (careeronestop, n.d.). I took the interest assessment first and it gave me 78 total results and listed 53 of those as the ‘best match’ (careeronestop, n.d.). I found that this was not very helpful overall because they ranged from entry level jobs to doctoral level and included architecture teachers, psychologist, and tour guides (careeronestop, n.d.). I like that this feature allows you to see so many career options, including those you hadn’t considered, but at the same time it could overwhelm someone who is looking there for help.
When searching the Find Training section, I did run into some problems but also found useful information (careeronestop, n.d.). I tried to find trainings or programs near me that were about autism or applied behavioral analysis but there were no results. I generalized to psychology and only colleges and their 4 year programs populated (careeronestop, n.d.). However, there was a professional development option and when I searched ABA it did recommend some very legitimate organizations relating to behavior therapy and autism (careeronestop, n.d.).
I went to the salary information page and was very disappointed (careeronestop, n.d.). I tried looking up autism, registered behavioral technician, behavior technician, positive behavior support specialist, and behavior with no avail. It appears they have no information on what I do now, RBT, or what I will do when I graduate, PBSS. I finally just generalized to psychologist in the salary search. This brought up a chart that listed what the top psychologist make, the middle, and the lowest (careeronestop, n.d.). This listed as psychologist all other, it did not differentiate on type, specialty, or where they work and it also listed the statistic as the entire U.S., not by state or region (careeronestop, n.d.).
Overall, I was not very impressed with the website (careeronestop, n.d.). I felt that there was a lot, and I mean almost too much, information that was too broad, not enough specifics or details. I felt that they touched on the topic of jobs in the lightest sense but did not delve into the specialties of the field. I feel that so much broad information and lacking in specifics could confuse someone searching for employment or career guidance even more. Even though I am a big proponent for doing almost everything online, I feel that for a lot of people having a person help sort through and weed out some options and making suggestions could be a big help. Even though careeronestop has a lot of information and helpful aspects, I really feel that O’NET or the BLS Occupational Outlook Handbook are much more helpful when it comes to getting information on careers.
