What is O*NET? 

O*NET, the Occupational Information Network, is the nation's new primary source of occupational information. 

O*NET provides a dynamic framework for exploring the world of work: 

  • information about what skills are in demand 
  • information to help workers with proven skills transfer to new careers 
  • national labor market information on employment levels, occupational outlook, and wages 

O*NET gives Americans the tools needed to participate fully and actively in a rapidly changing world of work. 

O*NET is a comprehensive database system that collects, organizes, describes and disseminates data on occupation characteristics and worker attributes. O*NET uses advanced technology to define the key elements of an occupation: descriptions of the worker and requirements of the work. Currently, there are over 1,100 occupations listed in O*NET; each is electronically linked through O*NET to the eight major existing job classification systems.
