The Vocational Analysis provides nineteen major vocation areas for consideration, based on major vocational categories suggested by the US Department of Labor in sorting its Dictionary of Occupational Titles. These areas are ranked from highest to lowest potential. The ranking is obtained by comparing the individual’s score to the general population. Each major vocational area further contains specific occupational titles which are also ranked to identify occupational potential. You may see an occupational title with a high rating while the vocational heading has a low rating, or vice versa. Strong vocational and occupational ratings in the same group indicate the greatest potential for success. However, each occupational statement should be reviewed individually.
