Content is the most important element of CIS. We present content in a systematically integrated format, meaning that we link and interrelate all of our information, so users can easily move among related pieces of information to compare pertinent information and make informed choices about their career and college futures. Users can opt to print all or selected portions of the information they view. CIS information is organized into three main categories: Occupations, Education, and Employment.
