O*NET® Products at Work
The U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration introduced the Occupational Information Network (O*NET) to the public in 1998. Since that time, its impact on workforce development, career counseling, educational programming and human resource activities has quickly expanded, both in the U.S. and around the world. O*NET Products at Work provides examples of the widespread use of O*NET OnLine, the O*NET database, the Toolkit for Business, and the O*NET Career Exploration Tools.

CDM Internet from CDM Internet
CDM Internet is an online tool for individual assessment and career exploration. Targeted at students ages 12 and above, the system may also be used by adults re-entering the world of work or transitioning between jobs. Backed by the O*NET database of occupational information, the tool allows users to explore their abilities, work values, and interests – leading to briefs on hundreds of related occupations, most with accompanying videos.
Career Direct® Complete Guidance System from Crown Financial Ministries has bee O*NET data ever since it became available on CD-ROM. Its use of O*NET information has been integrated more directly with the guidance system since Career Direct went online a few years ago. Career Direct is a self-administered personality, skills, abilities, interests, and work/life values career guidance system. Because many of the system’s users have job titles with a religious element, Career Direct created a crosswalk, translating religious job titles to the closest O*NET occupations. This is similar to using the O*NET Code Connector between Military Occupational Codes and O*NET occupational codes. The system guides the user into exploring O*NET occupations that most closely align with their talents and personal goals.
