Examining Possible Jobs with the Dictionary of Occupational Titles (D.O.T.).
Bowman, Linda
The Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOT) contains information on more than 35,000 occupations in the United States. Volume I of the publication contains the names and definitions of more than 35,000 jobs, including information on what gets done, how it gets done, and why it gets done. The definitions also provide information on aptitudes, interests, and temperaments required for the job, and information on the extent to which the worker is involved with information, instructions, people, animals, and inanimate objects. Volume II contains two sections and four appendixes. It groups occupations into categories and explains the numerical codes used. This workbook provides a map to the third edition of the DOT, designed to help students use the reference. Emphasis is on using the publication to obtain information about various jobs without the burden of learning how the DOT is structured. The workbook is divided into two sections. In each section students are asked to look up information and write down a response. The workbook is arranged in such a way that students may work independently and at their own pace. It is appropriate for use at both the high school and early college levels. (KC)
