Crosswalks connect occupations in the O*NET database to other classification systems. Use these files to relate external data to O*NET-SOC occupations, or to link O*NET data to occupations in another classification.
O*NET Military Transition Search
The military search within O*NET OnLine and My Next Move for Veterans combines several sources of military occupation linkages. For details, see the Military Transition Search report.
The search is based on data from the MOC crosswalk by the Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC)
external site, and supplemented with data from:
- An enhanced analysis
external site for key military occupations, which was commissioned by the U.S. Department of Labor working in collaboration with the Department of Defense, per the specifications of Section 222 of the VOW to Hire Heroes Act
- A research report on Army KSAs
external site by the RAND Corporation, which identified a broad range of civilian occupations based on the knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs) needed by Army soldiers to perform ten of the largest Army military occupational specialties (MOSs).
- DOD COOL
external site branch-specific sites (Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, Navy).
- The ASVAB Career Exploration Program
external site, Office of People Analytics (OPA)
external site, Careers in the Military
external site. The linkages in this crosswalk are currently being updated using a combination of statistical modeling and task analysis approaches.

Standard Occupational Classification (SOC)
Occupations in the O*NET database are based on the Standard Occupational Classification (SOC)
external site system. Visit our O*NET-SOC Taxonomy page to learn more.
European Skills, Competences, Qualifications and Occupations (ESCO)
This crosswalk connects the European Skills, Competences, Qualifications and Occupations (ESCO)
external site classification with the O*NET-SOC Taxonomy. The mapping of the two classifications was performed by combining the use of artificial intelligence (AI) techniques with human validation.
