Job Families are groups of similar occupations based on work performed and on required skills, education, training, and credentials. Using the Browse by Job Family option, you can select from any of the 23 Standard Occupational Classification job families. In the example that follows, “Community and Social Services” is selected from the pull-down menu in a search for the occupation of “Community Health Workers”.
The subsequent screen provides a list of all occupations within the specified job family. You can sort the occupations by O*NET-SOC Code or by Title by selecting the appropriate link.
Should you not identify your occupation of interest in the selected job family, you can immediately re-select another job family from the accompanying pull-down menu. You can also view every O*NET-SOC occupation by choosing “All Occupations” from the pull-down menu.
For any occupation listed, select its title to see more information about the corresponding occupation. For more information on these options, see OnLine Help for Summary, Details, or Custom Report.
