Hot Technologies are requirements frequently included in employer job postings. This response lists all hot technologies recognized in O*NET OnLine. The id attribute can be passed to the Hot Technology details service below, to retrieve more information about a particular technology.

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. To learn more about the identification of hot technologies, see the report Identification of “Hot Technologies” within the O*NET System.

Hot Technologies are requirements frequently included in employer job postings. This response provides a list of relevant occupations and other information about a particular technology.

The technology element provides the title of the chosen technology. If the technology occurs at the example level within an occupation's Tools & Technology report, the categories element provides a list of all associated categories. This element is not present for hot technologies which occur at the category level.

The service also returns occupations linked to this technology. By default, occupations are sorted by a rank ordering based on the number of job postings including this technology. You can change this order by passing the optional sort parameter:

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

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.
