O*NET SOC 2019 Occupations Now Available!

Our core data library has received a significant update, aligning us with the O*NET-SOC 2019 occupations. What does this mean for you?

Profile and Warrior will now show O*NET-SOC 2019 occupations, aligning our endpoints with the latest occupational understandings.

All endpoints (Profiler and Warrior specifically) now resolve to O*NET-SOC 2019 occupations.

This means, for example, that a profile for a software developer may now return the new 15-1252.00 "Software Developers" and will no longer return the old “Software Developers, Applications” which has been eliminated from the O*NET dataset.

There are similar changes across the occupational data in every workforce domain. Some new occupations will now appear in Profiler and Warrior results, some old occupations will no longer appear, some have been split into multiple occupations, and some occupations have been combined into a single new occupation.

Note that our library of skill elements, including Detailed Work Activities and related data, is still unique to SkillsEngine, but has been re-mapped to align with the new O*NET-SOC 2019 occupations.

Other changes related to this update

  • Tools and Technologies have been updated to include the latest from O*NET
  • The Matcher endpoints are aware of the occupation and skill element changes, which may result in slightly different matches in some cases, as these holistic changes to the library alter some of the weights and biases in our intelligent algorithms.
  • The Expander endpoints may now surface some of the new Tools and Technologies from the latest O*NET datasets.
