Employment and Training Administration (DOL), Washington, DC.
Developed by the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Information Network (O*NET) team, the O*NET[TM] Career Exploration Tools (Version 3.0) consist of three main parts: (1) the Interest Profiler; (2) the Work Importance Locator; and (3) the O*NET[TM] Occupations Combined List. The Interest Profiler is a self-assessment career exploration tool that can help individuals discover the type of work activities and occupations they would like and find exciting and use their interest results to explore the world of work; the Profiler includes: a User's Guide, Instrument, Score Report, and O*NET[TM] Occupations Master List. The Work Importance Locator allows individuals to pinpoint what is important to them in a job as well as helping them identify occupations that they may find satisfying based on the similarity between their work values and the characteristics of the occupations; the Locator includes: a User's Guide, Instrument, Score Report, and O*NET[TM] Occupations List. The final component of the Exploration Tools, the O*NET Occupations Combined List, Interests and Work Values, combines the results from both instruments and provides a comprehensive listing of O*NET 3.0 occupations arranged by each Interest/Work Value category to help users explore careers.
