Job Browser Pro - Version 1.7.5

After 6 months of development and extensive review of the way we link NAICS 2022 industries to each DOT occupation, we are pleased to announce immediate availability of Job Browser Pro PC – Version 1.7.5 and Job Browser Pro Web!! The JBP Web version includes all the worker trait features of OccuBrowseWeb!

PC version 1.7.5 was released 11/12/2023 to better align the PC version DOT estimates with the web-based estimates and to update multiple core data files. Job Browser Pro Web will be released late evening 11/13/2023.


Improvements and New Features in job browser pro PC - Version 1.7.5

  • New links between DOT and NAICS 2022 Industries – (nearly 120,000 links!) - We made more than 30,000 changes to adapt to the NAICS 2022 Industry Classification System.
  • “Show all DOTs in a SOC/OES Group” now includes the DOT Estimate for each DOT in the SOC/OES and shows the total employment estimated for the entire group (DOT Estimate tab) in descending order by DOT Estimate. This quickly shows you which are the expected dominant DOT occupations (i.e. more in the actual labor market).
  • DOT Estimate page now includes CBP hyperlink to the NAICS Industry Analyzer, which includes: County Business Patterns (CBP), Current Employment Statistics (CES) - updated monthly, display of products produced in an industry, Occupational Staffing Pattern (from OEWS data) for each NAICS, with display of the DOTs associated with the SOCs reported by employers in that NAICS
  • 2022 Occupational Employment and Wage Statistics (OEWS) - From employer reported survey
  • North American Industry Classification Systems (NAICS) 2022
  • 2022à2032 Long term employment projections using NAICS 2022 aggregated coding
  • 2022 Census Employment and Wage Data (from household survey)
  • 2019 ACS Full-Time/Part-Time data by occupation - we will update this to 2023 data when it is released next year. We are awaiting for this sufficient post-COVID data set.
  • Education Search can find training now by key word (our web version links to Schools!)
  • Interest Search - OOH search tab now links directly to OOH Online
  • O*NET Online button now directly links to the O*NET Summary Report
  • Real Jobs button links to Simply Hired for the selected occupation and area - [NOTE: Job Browser Pro Web links to 6 Job Search Engines!]
  • Skills/Competencies tab shows multiple Work Fields; Extended button shows useful tips for resume writing (not from the DOT)
  • Work Situations / Temperaments tab renamed to focus on these Work-side demands
  • JBP Web version includes all the worker trait features of OccuBrowseWeb!

Job Browser Pro PC Version 1.7.5 is a complete replacement of all files. The icon is an orange color. We have done extensive research to enable estimation of employment at a weighted average > 90% for each SOC/OES group. We no longer allow customers to immediately modify NAICS industries for a DOT occupation. We do allow customers to submit suggestions, which we will review and incorporate into a subsequent update as appropriate. We want to prevent double counting and inappropriate NAICS, so we will study each submitted suggestion in the context of the impact of that suggestion on the entire SOC/OES Group.

We will be publishing some additional documentation early in 2024 on just all of what we have been busy doing in this very lengthy and extensive research effort!

Existing customers: Upgrade to Version 1.7.5 is available through the normal update process for paid customers current on the Internet Update Service. We look forward to your comments!
