We are excited to have been invited to be an Ally of O*Net.
The Occupational Information Network (O*NET) Program is the nation’s primary source of occupational information. Central to the project is the O*NET database, containing hundreds of standardized and occupation-specific descriptors on almost 1,000 occupations covering the entire U.S. economy. The database, which is available to the public at no cost, is continually updated from input by a broad range of occupational experts and workers in the occupations. O*NET data is essential to understanding the rapidly changing nature of work and how it impacts the workforce and U.S. economy. From this data, applications are developed to facilitate the development and maintenance of a skilled workforce. O*NET information is used by millions of individuals every year, including those taking advantage of O*NET Online, My Next Move, and other publicly and privately developed applications. The data have proven vital in helping people find the training and jobs they need, and employers the skilled workers necessary to be competitive in the marketplace.
