O*NET, the Occupational Information Network, is a comprehensive database of occupational skills, knowledge and abilities that can help you align your military experience, education, and training curricula with current civilian workplace needs. Use a list of your skills to find matching O*NET-SOC occupations.


Using O*NET Online, you can use your Military Occupation Classification (MOC) to identify similar occupations in the civilian workforce for which you may be qualified.


Go to the Crosswalk Search, enter your MOC code or title, and click “Go” to find matching civilian occupations. If you don’t know your MOC code, you can use the Dictionary of Occupational Titles, Standard Occupational Classification and Apprenticeship to find O*NET occupations.


For occupations that interest you, you can also view summary reports that will help you explore occupational requirements. Learn about the wages and employment trends for your state by clicking the Wages and Employment link at the bottom of the report.


O*Net also enables you to search for occupations by keyword, skills or O*NET-SOC codes and job families as well as view a complete list of occupations.


Comprehensive information on job accommodations that may involve a change in the work environment, the way a specific job is performed, or the use of special equipment is also available on O*NET Online.


The Occupational Information Network (O*NET) and O*NET Online were developed for the U.S. Department of Labor by the National O*NET Consortium. For more information, visit
