Occupational Information Network Coverage
The Occupational Information Network (O*NET), which replaces the Dictionary of Occupational Titles, will be used by public employment service offices to classify and place job seekers. The O*NET was developed by job analysts. Future information on job duties, knowledge and skills, education and training, and other occupational characteristics will come directly from workers and employers. Information on O*NET is available from O*NET, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Ave. NW., Room C-4514, Washington, DC 20210. Telephone (202) 693-3046 Internet: http://www.doleta.gov/programs/onet/
The O*NET reflects the 2000 Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) system. With 822 detailed occupations, the SOC is designed to provide a universal occupational classification system. All Federal agencies that collect occupational data will adhere to the SOC. Information on the SOC, including its occupational structure, is available on the Internet: http://www.bls.gov/soc/.
