O*NET® Products at Work

Florida Research and Economic Database FRED external site from Florida Agency for Workforce Innovation external site

Florida Agency for Workforce Innovation uses O*NET information for job matching, reemployment analysis, and business recruitment. O*NET data is embedded in FRED, the Florida Research and Economic Database. One key application is preparing labor supply studies for business recruitment. O*NET also plays a large role in Florida’s Reemployment LMI One-Stop Workshop. The workshop trains workforce development professionals to use the appropriate O*NET data sets and complementary tools for reemployment analysis: selecting the right tools, evaluating current skills, discovering transferable skills, studying related occupations, and finding growth industries. Workshop participants learn how to overlay pertinent local labor market information on the data from these dimensions of occupational information. The workshop enables staff members to help job seekers, employers, and workforce professionals to meet their respective challenges.
