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.

Enhancing Skills of Salvadorans in the New Century from The United States Agency for International Development (USAID )
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in El Salvador, through its Economic Growth Office, issued a Request for Task Order Proposal (RFTOP) to implement a workforce development program titled “Enhancing Skills of Salvadorans in the New Century.” The objective of this Task Order is to improve the functioning of the Salvadoran labor market by matching the country’s supply of skilled workers with private sector demands for labor. Occupational research could be used to jump-start curriculum development processes and provide trainers with industry experience and standards. USAID suggests that adapting O*NET classifications of occupational knowledges, skills, and abilities would be one way to help trainers to effectively design curriculum and skills assessments for their trainees.
