Yesterday, we were using the occupation of truck driver to illustrate how
the Dictionary of Occupational Titles defines an occupation. There are
a lot of important components to the definition. First, all jobs are codified
under a certain numerical code. The next component is the essence of the
next few blogs.
The first component is called a "lead statement" that will summarize
the entire job. Essentially, it is a statement that encompasses a very
broad view of a job. Regarding a truck driver (light duty), DOT defines
a driver as "drives truck with capacity under 3 tons to transport
materials in liquid or packaged form and personnel to and from specified
destination, such as railroad stations, plants, residences, office, or
within industrial yards."
The purpose is to allow the user to get a very global perspective of the job.
