Inputs to Vocational-Technical Education from Occupational Research.
Christal, Raymond E.
The Air Force has developed a data bank which classifies job descriptions into occupational clusters. A retrieval system, also recently developed computes and publishes a consolidated description of the work being performed by any group which can be defined in terms of the background information. Other retrieval programs are available which enable the user to obtain background information on a specific job group, or to study the differences between two background groups. Suggestions are offered for ways in which similar data banks and retrieval systems might be of help to the civilian section, permitting rapid matching between job opportunities and job applicants.
