Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOT) Job Descriptions
  HOME  |  CONTACT US

The DOT was created by the Employment and Training Administration. It is included on this web site because it is a standard reference in several types of cases adjudicated by the Office of Administrative Law Judges, especially labor-related immigration cases. The DOT is being replaced by the O*NET. For information, see the O*NET Home Page. See also 63 Fed. Reg. 41896 (Standard Occupational Classification Revision Policy Committee's (SOCRPC) final recommendations for revising the 1980 Standard Occupational Classification's (SOC) occupational units and aggregate groups; the new SOC will serve as the framework for information being gathered through the O*NET).

To find the Occupation Listing by numerical designation, look in the sections linked below. If you need to find the Occupational Listings cross-referenced by Title Name, search the Alphabetical Index Of Occupational Titles to locate the Numerical Designation, then return here to find the Job Description. *Note: The Alphabetical Index is a very long file and takes some time to load.*
