  1. Who could use tools and technology data?
    Tools and technology data is valuable to various people in the following ways:
    • Job seekers can use the Tools and Technology resource to identify new technical skills, competencies, and cutting-edge technologies used in today's information and technology-driven economy. For example, if you are interested in being a mechanical engineer, you will learn about the different tools (like vibration testers and interferometers) and technologies (like specific computer aided design software and analytical software) you may use on the job.
    • Employers can use the Tools and Technology resource to enhance training resources with occupation-specific requirements and create more accurate and detailed occupation descriptions.
    • Community colleges can use the Tools and Technology resource to identify transferable skills to aid in the development of education and training curriculum and certifications.

    CareerInfoNet has data for over 800 occupations. Approximately 150 of these occupations have tools and technology data available. Highest priority for the development of tools and technology data is given to in-demand occupations.

  3. What is the Tools and Technology resource and how can I use it?
    Tools and Technology refers to a resource that provides tools and technology data developed by the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Information Network (O*NET). This resource uses more than 14,000 descriptors to highlight what workers will need to be efficient in a high-performance workplace. Not all of the tools and technology used on the job are included. Emphasis is placed on the cutting-edge technologies and emerging workplace practices. You can view tools and technology data by selecting an occupation in the new Tools and Technology resource or choosing to display it on an Occupational Profile.
