O*NET OnLine was created to provide broad access to the O*NET database of occupational information, which includes information on skills, abilities, work activities, and interests associated with occupations. O*NET includes information for over 950 occupations, and the occupational titles and codes are based on the 1999 Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) system. Users can search for occupations by title or keyword in the description or browse by job family. The Skill Search allows the user to find occupations that match a list of current or soon-to-be-acquired skills. Users can also compare up to ten related occupations to one selected from the list. This is a powerful tool, and it is recommended that counselors become familiar with it before recommending it to clients. Several new search and browse capabilities have been added in the past year, including a new Browse by Job Zone feature. This allows users to find O*NET occupations based on the amount of preparation necessary for a successful job performance, from little or no preparation to extensive preparation.
