This month O*NET, or the Occupational Information Network, has revamped its O*NET-SOC 2009 taxonomy to include 153 additional new and emerging occupations. These are within 17 industry clusters that O*NET identified as being “in-demand.”

You can read more about the update here, or check out this recent post on the subject.

Many of these new titles are already included for EMSI users in Economic Forecaster (under the “Occupation” tab and “Groups”). But the new green-focused occupations (e.g., Wind Energy Operation Managers) don’t have data or competencies tied to them as this point, so they are not in Strategic Advantage.
