Information regarding the features of jobs and the people who fill them is effective for occupation tips, reemployment counseling, staff improvement, human source administration, and different reasons. to satisfy those wishes, the U.S. division of work (DOL) in 1998 introduced the Occupational details community (O*NET), which is composed of a content material model--a framework for organizing occupational data--and an digital database. The O*NET content material version comprises 1000s of descriptors of labor and employees equipped into domain names, similar to talents, wisdom, and paintings actions. facts are gathered utilizing a category procedure that organizes activity titles into 1,102 occupations. The nationwide middle for O*NET improvement (the O*NET heart) constantly collects information relating to those occupations. In 2008, DOL asked the nationwide Academies to check O*NET and think about its destiny instructions. In reaction, the current quantity inventories and evaluates the makes use of of O*NET; explores the linkage of O*NET with the traditional Occupational category procedure and different information units; and identifies how you can enhance O*NET, rather within the components of cost-effectiveness, potency, and foreign money.

Organizational Context The Organizational Context taxonomy is based on the assumption that the nature of an occupation will vary as a function of the nature of the organization in which it is embedded. This assumption raises questions. For example, is the occupation of economics professor described differently at a large public research university and a small liberal arts college? If so, should the differences be regarded as sampling error or as substantive occupational differences, and is the design of the O*NET database equipped to handle the latter?
Job applicant or job incumbent), or (3) the context in which work takes place. , 1999, p. 13). Compared with the APDOT content model, the O*NET prototype gave less attention to occupation-specific descriptors and concentrated to a greater extent on so-called cross-occupation descriptors, or variables that could be measured meaningfully in all occupations and along which occupations would be expected to vary. As discussed later in this chapter, it is not easy to distinguish between cross-occupation and occupation-specific descriptors.

Occupational Preparation The prototype content model included a taxonomy of the education, training, and other preparation required for occupations (Anderson, 1999). At the most general level, the descriptors were grouped into 7 categories: general education level, instructional program required (42 descriptors), subject-area education level (15 descriptors), licenses required (2 descriptors), requirement to obtain a license (6 descriptors), who requires the license (3 descriptors), and related work experience (4 descriptors).
