This response lists all occupations meeting the selected Bright Outlook criteria. Instead of a Bright Outlook category, developers may pass the value all to retrieve all Bright Outlook occupations. The bright_outlook element provides information about each occupation's outlook; occupations may meet multiple criteria.

By default, returned occupations are sorted by title. You can change this by passing the optional sort parameter:

  • name - sort by occupation title (default)
  • code - sort by O*NET-SOC code

The result list is paged, returning 20 occupations 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.
