The career list may be referring to the list of careers compiled by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which is the grouping that many employers and research tools use to standardize their employment data. The Bureau of Labor Statistics has two such listings; the more detailed listing is the Occupational Outlook Handbook, which, for hundreds of different types of jobs will provide the following information about each listed job: the training and education needed for a particular job, the earnings for that job, the expected job prospects, what workers in that job do in the course of their employment, and the working conditions for that job.

The Occupational Outlook Handbook is updated every two years, and is written for adults and upper-level high school students. The latest version of the Occupational Outlook Handbook can be found online through the federal government's Bureau of Labor and Statistics.

The career list is a boiled down version of the Occupational Outlook Handbook made available to both students and teachers. It is designed to provide introductory career information for students. Each occupational description contained in the list contains a link to the Occupational Outlook Handbook section dealing with that particular occupation, in case the student desires further information. It is updated every two years, once the Occupational Outlook Handbook has been updated. The careers listed for the students are broken down into twelve basic categories for students. These categories are math, reading, science, social studies, music and arts, building and fixing things, helping people, computers, law, managing money, sports and nature. A designation for green careers has also been added. The list can also be found online through the federal government's Bureau of Labor and Statistics.
