The O*Net program is the nation's primary source of occupational information, containing information on hundreds of standardized and occupation-specific descriptors. The database, which is available to the public at no cost, is continually updated by surveying a broad range of workers from each occupation. Information from the database forms the heart of O*Net OnLine, an interactive application for exploring and searching occupations. The database also provides the basis for Career Exploration Tools, a set of valuable assessment instruments for workers and students looking to find or change careers.

Using O*Net OnLine, you can:
*find ocupations to explore;
*search for occupations that use your skills;
*look at related occupations;
*view Summary Reports, including the most important characteristics of the worker and requirements of the work;
*view Detail Reports or Custom Reports, offering the user control over the type and level of information displayed;
*use crosswalks to find corresponding occupations in other classification systems; and
*connect to other online career information resources.

Students: Discover occupations you might enjoy by taking the Interest Profiler and Work Importance Profiler assessments right from your computer. If you have an occupation in mind, learn more about it from My Next Move.
