Although it has only been a couple of weeks since the post announcing the release of v10.0, the software was actually released in February … I’ve just been very slow getting the news on the blog.
Not long after release of v10.0 we received a request from one of our State customers (Louisiana) that the Military Occupational Classification (MOC) crosswalk be integrated into the AutoCoderTM application so that transitioning veterans could use their MOC codes when searching for O*NET and SOC occupation codes … a really great idea!
So this week we’re releasing O*NET-SOC AutoCoderTM v10.1, which retains the functionality of v10.0, but adds support for the latest Military Occupational Classification (MOC) crosswalk released by the O*NET Center. In contrast to other implementations of the MOC crosswalk, users aren’t required to use a military-specific interface; nor are users required to enter their branch of service. Why? We wanted to keep the interface consistent for both civilian and transitioning military job seekers so that there would be no need to split the two groups during the job search process.
