Using the Department of Labor's O*NET Database in Teaching HRM
Keywords:Occupational Information Network (O*NET), Importance of HR tasks, SHRM curriculum guidelines
AbstractThe tasks of non-HR managerial occupations in O*NET are used to show the importance of HR and to provide input to the content of the business school's HR course. The tasks of the HR occupations in O*NET (HR managers and specialists, Training and Development managers and specialists, Compensation and Benefits managers and specilists, and Labor Relations specialists) are applied to traditional HR concentration courses. Those occupation-related courses are validated against SHRM's curriculum guidelines. Data and tools freely available in O*NET are described to help HR faculty members integrate up-to-date information regarding career exploration, occupational outlooks, job descriptions, and pay ranges.
