This response returns selected examples of the software used in a career. For occupations with technology examples collected by the O*NET Tools and Technology project, one or more category elements will be returned.

Each category element includes a unspsc attribute, which indicates the UNSPSC external site commodity under which the examples are grouped. The element contains exactly one title child, which corresponds to the UNSPSC commodity title. Zero or more example elements follow, indicating more specific products or types of software used by workers in the occupation.

Any examples or categories classified as “hot technologies” are identified with a hot_technology attribute on the example or title element. The value is an ID which can be passed to the Hot Technology details service (part of the O*NET OnLine services). My Next Move marks hot technologies with a fire icon Hot Technology; developers can download this icon in multiple sizes from the Resource Center Graphics section.
