A prior SkillTRAN TSA (Transferable Skills Analysis) report is NOT required. If you have already invested in other DOT-based computerized software, you can use the results of that software as your starting place for the employer listings you need for conducting a thorough Labor Market Survey or for Real Job Openings. SkillTRAN Employer Listings and Real Job Openings take you the rest of the way to establishing feasibility, sponsoring a job search to find current opportunities, and developing better founded expert opinions.
The special employer listing report can include additional questions you want to ask during your actual survey calls to employers. SkillTRAN suggests the types of industry that are likely to be appropriate for contacts in the context of each DOT occupation you identify for labor market research. You can add your own industry choices by key word or industry category.
The popular Employer Listings report format now includes:
