The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) is looking for volunteers from the human resources and training and development professions to take a survey as part of an upcoming data collection project for its
Occupational Information Network (O*NET) program. Responses from survey participants will be compiled to update the required knowledge, skills and job activities for several HR-related positions listed in the O*NET occupational database.
The DOL’s O*NET program, provided through the Employment and Training Administration, represents the nation's primary source of occupational information. Central to the project is the O*NET database, which contains information for more than 900 occupations nationwide. The database, available free to the public, is the foundation for O*NET OnLine, which is an interactive application for exploring and searching occupations, and the DOL’s Career Exploration Tools, assessments for workers and students looking to find or change careers.
The database is continually updated by surveying a broad range of workers from each occupation. The survey questionnaires take approximately 90 minutes to complete, with a usual return requested within 30 to 45 days. Among the specific occupations in 2015 for which O*NET researchers at Research Triangle Institutehope to find HR experts:
These experts typically have at least five years of experience within the field, and supervisory or training-related experience. In addition, they must have the expertise to rate the occupation on tasks, knowledge areas, work context factors and work activities.
For more information about the program or to volunteer, contact Traci Davis at Research Triangle Institute, 877-233-7348, ext. 109; or e-mail
