Putting Your Major to Work: Career Paths After College
Using data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, The Hamilton Project has calculated annual median earnings for men and women of various ages who have graduated with a particular major and entered a given occupation. For each group of college graduates, they show the most common types of jobs, as well as the fractions of graduates who are unemployed, out of the labor force, and employed full- or part-time. In addition, among each group of workers with a particular major, they show the range of annual earnings and the percent who obtained education beyond a bachelor’s degree for the most common types of jobs. This interactive is intended to be a resource for those who seek a better understanding of how their college major can be used, as well as those interested in how college specialization and the labor market interact.

The Tulsa Hub
Tulsa Hub is a syndicate of volunteers on a mission to change lives through cycling. It is the only non-profit in Oklahoma providing certified bicycling-for-transportation education, refurbished bicycles, safety gear, and follow-up support to people in poverty, people with physical and mental disabilities, and people who are otherwise disenfranchised in our community.
Bikes are donated by Tulsa citizens and refurbished by Tulsa Hub staff and volunteer mechanics. After participants “pay it forward” with a minimum of six hours of volunteerism and training, bicycles and gear are earned in the Adult Cycling Empowerment (ACE) program. The mission also works to change the habits of the next generation through active-transportation programs with elementary- and middle-school students.
Federal Bonding Program
In 1966 the U.S. Department of Labor established The Federal Bonding Program to provide Fidelity Bonds that guarantee honesty for “at-risk”, hard-to-place job seekers. The bonds cover the first six months of employment. There is no cost to the job applicant or the employer.
Government Housing Programs
Legal Aid has produced a chart that demonstrates eligibility for government housing programs. In this chart you will find different scenarios that deal with felony convictions, current user of illegal drugs, and recovered substance abuse user, as well as, their eligibility for government housing programs. Legal Aid is still researching this issue in order to develop a more comprehensive list of information.
Provisional Driver’s License
Information about the Department of Public Safety Provisional Driver’s License Program
Since ex-offenders lose their driver’s license when convicted, one of their biggest hurdles is finding work once released because of transportation issues.
Oklahoma enacted a Provisional Driver’s License Program that allows an individual who has lost his license due to a drug conviction to obtain a provisional license that allows him to drive to certain locations, including a place of employment.
