The West Virginia Rehabilitation Center used O*NET Online to help clients with career exploration. Many clients are students (ages 15-23) who are transitioning from school to work. Students used the Web-based tool to search on keywords related to occupational interests.

Adults with disabilities also used O*NET information to transition to jobs using related skills. A firefighter who had been seriously injured on the job discovered through O*NET OnLine that he had skills similar to insurance adjustors.

After identifying the common factors reported by highly satisfied workers, CareerJournal used occupational data in the O*NET database, looking for O*NET occupations with high ratings related to three of the four contributing factors.

CareerDecisionMaker ® (CDM) from E-Career Guidance.Com, Ltd. (ECG)
http://www.careerdecisionmaker.com/ContactUs.aspx
http://www.careerdecisionmaker.com/default.aspx

E-Career Guidance.Com, Ltd. (ECG) is an Irish company that provides vocational and career counseling services. They developed an online career exploration tool, the CareerDecisionMaker® (CDM), which assesses a client’s standing on variables from four domains: vocational interests, work values, personality, and skills. The client’s score profile is matched to score profiles for occupations. The occupations having profiles that correspond most closely to the client’s profile are presented as career options that the client might explore. ECG linked the CDM to the O*NET database and its occupations from the Standard Occupational Classification (SOC). Scores from two of the CDM domains link directly to O*NET data for Interests and Work Values. The CDM skills and personality domains, however, differ from the O*NET Skills and Work Styles domains (i.e., they are based on different taxonomies). ECG contracted with Human Resources Research Organization (HumRRO) to develop skills and personality profiles for O*NET’s SOC occupations that are commensurate with the CDM skills and personality profiles. In addition, HumRRO devised a profile matching algorithm that permits use of the entire four-domain CDM profile to identify promising career options for ECG’s clients. All project activities (e.g., development of stimulus materials for O*NET analysts, summary of personality ratings provided by O*NET analysts, data analysis, development of the profile-matching algorithm) are documented in a technical report (McCloy, Byrum, Munoz, & Tsacoumis,2006).
