Job Browser Pro is endorsed by the International Association of Rehabilitation Professionals (IARP) since 2001 as "high quality, reasonably priced, and beneficial to IARP members".
"Although initially skeptical, this reviewer was amazed at the closeness of job numbers utilized in his practice with most of the job numbers projected in Job Browser Pro – Version 1.6. The Job Browser is an essential part of providing numbers of jobs for forensic testimony."
Once the vocational expert has identified those occupations that are consistent with parameters of the hypothet, software products such as SkillTRAN’s Job Browser Pro, will allow the vocational expert to credibly produce regional and national job numbers associated with these occupational titles only. Owing to the limited amount of time allowed for response, the vocational expert may not be able to identify all occupations and associated job numbers that are consistent with the hypothet but, more importantly, the testimony provided will be credible rather than illusory and sufficient to withstand, in this writer’s opinion, a Daubert challenge, meet the requirements of pertinent circuit court jurisprudence as well as SSR 00-4p.
Unique, original occupational information in the style of the D.O.T. is available in JOB BROWSER Pro for new, emerging occupations. Certified vocational professionals prepared and reviewed this information. SkillTRAN encourages customers to submit their ideas for more new and emerging titles. The new occupations are listed below. They can be looked up by title. Since these are completely original research, they are not contained in the DOT book itself. To look them all up, enter *** as the job title.

JOB BROWSER Pro includes skill and competency information from original research to build a proprietary set of skill and competency information about occupations. Use it for job descriptions, resume writing and employee, education, or on-the-job training plan development. The research initiative was undertaken since the development of widely known public Skill Standards for occupations is still being developed.
For all white collar occupations, the original research has led to the identification of a core set of skills and competencies which it has associated with clusters of occupations. These skills and competencies are drawn from a variety of national sources, including traits and abilities desired by employers in help wanted advertisements published in newspapers and web sites, from published public and private works on competency and skills research, from trade, licensing, and professional associations, apprenticeship standards, and U.S. and Canadian government data such as SCANS, existing skill standards, and selected O*NET data.
For both white and blue collar occupations, skill words are presented from the 1991 Revised Handbook for Analyzing Jobs to detail the common skills associated with each WORK field assigned to the selected occupation. Skill & Competency information is reported in JOB BROWSER Pro. The information is helpful for improved resumé writing, training plan development, and job description writing.
Each search method generates a different set of occupations.
SkillTRAN encourages professional and advanced users to explore these various methods to become familiar with the different ways of conceptualizing the world of work, and then be able to quickly identify specific related occupations from nearly any career perspective. Search using these categories for career exploration and transition planning, career ladders, and on-the-job training ideas. It can also be very helpful for picking a college major or training program before education begins, transition from school-to-work, even transition from military to civilian occupations.
As you gain familiarity with the different categories, you will learn to listen to your clients differently and know where to search!
JOB BROWSER Pro enables easy search and look up by:
