CHRONICLE OCCUPATIONAL BRIEFS ARE:
Each Occupational Brief is coded to the Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOT), the Guide for Occupational Exploration (GOE), the Dictionary of Holland Occupational Codes (HOC), the Standard Occupational Classification (SOC), the North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS), and the U.S. Department of Labor O*NET database code.
Each Brief gives an overview of the occupation, work performed, working conditions, salary ranges, and education and training needed. Other information covers personal qualifications for the job; licenses, unions, or professional organizations associated with the occupation; where the jobs are; employment outlook; entry methods; and advancement opportunities. Concluding sections give information on related occupations and sources for more information about the career.
Chronicle relies on professionals, each a recognized leader in his or her field, to review the new and revised briefs. Their comments help ensure that the information in the briefs is accurate, timely, and complete.
- Free of Bias
The Occupational Briefs are free of stereotyping by age, ethnicity, and gender. Photographs in the briefs feature minorities, persons with disabilities, both men and women in nontraditional jobs, and men and women working together on the job.
Chronicle Occupational Briefs are available in print, on CD-ROM, and as an Internet application.
