O*NET® Products at Work

The Montana State Human Resource Division external site

The Montana State Human Resource Division relies on O*NET information for employee classification using their broadband classification system. The detailed occupational information in the O*NET database determines the most appropriate title and placement for a given position. O*NET information is compared to the tasks in position descriptions and to required competencies. State job titles and codes are aligned with the O*NET taxonomy to expedite the use of O*NET data for classification and compensation. When government job titles are difficult to match, O*NET task lists, knowledges, skills, abilities, and work activities assist in making needed distinctions.
