What Is The Definition Of A Particular Occupation Under Dictionary Of Occupational Titles?

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.
