O*NET Advancements:

Official O*NET Training & Support Sites

O*NET System Adoption & Expansion

O*NET Code Connector

The Newest Version of O*NET

O*NET Assessment Tools

Demo ETA’s Web-based Application - O*NET OnLine (time permitting)


What is o net

What is O*NET?

  • O*NET = Occupational Information Network

  • ETA’s Computerized Replacement of the Antiquated & Often Unwieldy “Dictionary of Occupational Titles” (DOT)

  • Uses the Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) System Approved by the Office of Management & Budget


What is o net1

What is O*NET?

More Than Just an Occupational Coding System:

  • A Comprehensive Database of Worker & Occupational Characteristics & Requirements, Plus Other Resources …

  • Featuring:

    • Knowledges, Skills, & Abilities (KSAs)

    • Specific Job Tasks

  • A “Common Language” on Jobs & Skills for the Public & Private Sectors and the Worlds of Work & Learning


Who can benefit from o net

Who Can Benefit from O*NET?

  • Job & Training Seekers can Identify Jobs & Careers which Match their Skills & Interests

  • Career Counselors can Better Identify Career Options for Clients

  • HR Personnel can Use O*NET to Write Better Job Descriptions … or Develop Better Staffing Tools

  • Employers can Refine their Recruitment & Training Goals

  • Training Providers can Develop Programs which Better Match Employer Needs


O net vs the dot

O*NET vs. the DOT

  • The DOT:

    • Was Created in 1939– a result of the Great Depression

    • Only 4 Editions Published in 62 Years!

    • The DOT was Published 12 Years Ago! -- A Revision of the 1977 4th Edition

  • O*NET Production Goals:

    • Completely Update the Content with Worker-provided Information Every 5 Years!

    • Update Approximately 15–25% of the O*NET Content Each Year!


O net vs the dot1

Still, the 2 Coding Systems can be “Crosswalked” Rather Easily
