Accolades and Peer Reviews of Job Browser Pro

 


IARP Logo

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."

 

Joseph E. Havranek, Ph.D. - 2008

 

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.

Skills & Competencies

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. 

Labor Market Information (LMI)

National, Statewide and Regional Wage and Employment Numbers

Job Browser Pro includes national, statewide, MSA (Metropolitan/Micropolitan Statistical Area) and now NON-MSA (i.e. Rural) Regions, mean and median wage information and employment numbers by OES groups. Additionally, when appropriate and available, Earnings text from the Occupational Outlook Handbook is interwoven.

National wage and employment information is derived from data supplied by the U.S. Department of Labor - Bureau of Labor Statistics. The information reflects U.S. National mean and median weekly wage data by occupation as collected and classified by the Bureau of the Census during its monthly Current Population Survey. The U.S. National average wage and employment numbers are reported annually by the CENSUS 2000 code group associated with the selected occupation. National CENSUS data is now reported by Mean and/or Median wage and for Men only, Women only, or both combined. CENSUS wage and employment information is revised every year and is updated as part of an optional maintenance program.

Among these three sources of wage data, SkillTRAN recommends use of the OES data, as it is based on survey responses by employers rather than household survey.

Estimate DOT Employment Numbers

SkillTRAN has introduced a revolutionary, new, industry-changing, continuously peer-reviewed methodology to estimate DOT employment numbers using standard government OES data (long term projections, occupational density (staffing patterns) by NAICS industry, and current OES employment numbers. SkillTRAN's suggestions of appropriate industries for each DOT occupation is subject to continuous peer review.

Long Term National Job Outlook

JOB BROWSER Pro includes long term national employment projections prepared by the U.S. Department of Labor and reported by Occupational Employment Survey (OES) group. The new statistics use the SOC 2000 coding system for OES groups. Current employment level (base year) and projected employment over 10 years are made by new NAICS industry (National Industry Classification System - replacement for the old SIC system) for each OES occupation and by NAICS industry. The projections are revised every other year and are updated as part of an optional maintenance program. An intervening year can be chosen and all of the projected are re-calculated automatically.

An Occupational Density Factor is now calculated on the NAICS industry projections. It is used to fine tune the estimate of local employment numbers by NAICS industry.

Additionally, when appropriate and available, the Outlook text from the Occupational Outlook Handbook is interwoven into the Long Term Outlook section.
