Using OES Occupation Profiles in a Job Search
Cunningham, Chris
Occupational Outlook Quarterly, v57 n1 p36-44 Spr 2013
Using occupation profiles, jobseekers can see which industries employ the most workers in a particular field, which geographical areas have high concentrations of those jobs, and how wages differ by industry and geographical area. This article gives an overview of the data in the Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) occupation profiles. It describes different jobseeking situations and shows how employment and wage data could be useful in each case. The first section describes how to use the three types of data in each profile: national, industry, and geographic. The second section explains how to get additional data by creating customized tables. The final section provides more information, including how to use industry profiles of occupations.
