Besides the occupational title, the table contains information about the SOC codes 2 , the level of demand for that occupation and green skills needed. Clicking on an occupation generates a summary report that first defines the occupation selected and then provides detailed information on more than a dozen aspects of that occupation including:.

In addition, there is information related to wages and employment trends in that occupation such as current employment level, projected growth rate, anticipated number of job openings in the next ten years, median local wages etc. Finally, there is a link to Job Postings on the Web where searches can be carried out for specific occupations.

Job postings on the CareerOneStop , which is accessed through the database, are updated daily and searches can be done at the zip-code level. The Credentials section deserves a little more attention. It contains occupational information linked with national and state level educational and industry databases, which workforce agencies might find particularly useful.
Under the credentials section, the user can search for four different components: 1 Training, 2 Certifications, 3 Licenses, and 4 Apprenticeships. Clicking on Apprenticeships will list the apprenticeship name and sponsor organizations in Illinois.

Unfortunately, it is currently not possible to run queries below state level under the Credentials section, but the state-level data can be analyzed further for smaller geographies such as counties or cities. If the user thinks the information provided in the summary report is not sufficient or too much, he or she can generate a detailed report or a custom report.
While the detailed report provides additional technical information related to different components of the selected occupation, a custom report allows the user to limit the report to information on certain occupational attributes. For example, there are at least nine rapid growth occupations that are green. The first edition of the DOT appeared in , when millions of American were out of work. Congress approved the Wagner-Peyser Act in , creating the U. Employment Service in the U.
Department of Labor DOL. As called for in the law, DOL provided funds and assistance to the states to create a national network of public employment offices and also initiated a program of occupational research in order to help the new employment offices classify and match job seekers with jobs National Research Council, This research program led to publication of the volume, which included concise definitions of approximately 17, jobs, presented alphabetically by job title; jobs were classified into one of occupational clusters and were also defined as skilled, semiskilled, or unskilled.
Department of Labor, , strategic goal 2 :. Meet the competitive labor demands of the worldwide economy by enhancing the effectiveness and efficiency of the workforce development and regulatory systems that assist workers and employers in meeting the challenges of global competition.
To support individuals in making education and training decisions and investments, and. To support business and community needs for a prepared and globally competitive workforce. The program consists of a content model, which is used to describe the characteristics of occupations, an ongoing data collection program to update information on these characteristics, and a program for the publication and maintenance of the database. The content model organizes information on many different characteristics of occupations into a taxonomy that is structured hierarchically.
These broad categories are referred to as domains. At the next level of the taxonomy, each of these six domains includes subcategories of occupational information, also structured hierarchically. Reprinted with permission.
Because these domains are also taxonomies, they are also referred to as descriptor taxonomies. Each domain is organized hierarchically.
For example, the Abilities domain includes three levels. The highest or most general level is comprised of four categories: cognitive, psychomotor, physical, and sensory U. Department of Labor, Each of these four groups of abilities includes two levels of more specific descriptors see Appendix B for the full hierarchy of domains and detailed descriptors.
The six broad domains and the detailed domains they contain are described briefly below some detailed domains are discussed more thoroughly in Chapter 2. Worker Characteristics: These are enduring characteristics of workers that may influence both performance and the capacity to acquire knowledge and skills required for effective work performance.

Worker Requirements: These are work-related attributes that are acquired or developed through experience and education. This broad domain includes three more specific domains: Skills, Knowledge, and Education. Experience Requirements: These are requirements that are explicitly linked to certain types of work activities, such as experience, training, licenses, and skills required for entry into the occupation.
Workforce Characteristics: This category includes variables describing the general characteristics of occupations that may influence occupational requirements. It includes labor market information such as wage levels and employment levels and occupational outlook information such as projected future employment levels.
Occupation-Specific Information: This category of information describes characteristics that apply either to a single occupation or to a more narrowly defined job family. Currently, the database includes two descriptor taxonomies, Tasks and Tools and Technology. Workforce characteristics data are provided through links to the employment, wage, and long-term employment projections databases produced by the U.
The O*NET content model: strengths and limitations
Bureau of Labor Statistics and state and local employment agencies U. These methods include surveying a national sample. After collection, the data are cleaned, nonresponse to surveys is analyzed at multiple levels, and weighting and estimation procedures are applied to account for nonresponse U. In recent years, the pace of data collection has slowed. These career exploration tools are designed to help individuals assess their work-related interests, what they consider important on the job, and their abilities in order to explore the occupations that relate most closely to those attributes.
Government Printing Office. In , when the U. Employment Service published the fourth edition of DOT, the agency decided it would be timely to evaluate both the uses of this catalogue of job-related information and the research program underlying it. The NRC committee raised concerns about the extent to which the entire realm of civilian jobs was covered and the accuracy of the information. Examples: Bright Outlook occupations are expected to grow rapidly in the next several years, or will have large numbers of job openings. Career Clusters contain occupations in the same field of work that require similar skills.
Students, parents, and educators can use Career Clusters to help focus education plans towards obtaining the necessary knowledge, competencies, and training for success in a particular career pathway. The green economy will cause a change in occupations' employment demand or work and worker requirements such as tasks, skills, knowledge, and credentials.
