This response searches for Tools & Technology (T2) categories relevant to a word or phrase. The closest matches are returned first.

Within each category in the result list, up to 4 examples and up to 6 occupations are returned. If additional examples or occupations are available for this category, a link is provided to the corresponding detail web service.

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. O*NET OnLine marks hot technologies with a fire icon Hot Technology; developers can download this icon in multiple sizes from the Resource Center Graphics section.

The result list is paged, returning 20 matches at a time by default. To navigate the full set of results, use the link rel="next" and link rel="prev" elements, or provide start and end parameters to jump directly to the desired results.
