MGMT410 Week 3 Web Exercise Understanding Job Analysis
Week 3 Web Exercise: Understanding Job Analysis
Overview - You will remember that the lecture stated that job analysis is the foundation of an effective human resource department. Job analysis is heavily dependent on data, however. As a result, HR professionals need reliable sources of information to perform a job analysis effectively.
The website for this assignment is hosted by the Department of Labor. It has been included in this course, because it is a database that contains comprehensive information on job requirements and worker competencies. (O*NET replaced the Dictionary of Occupational Titles [DOT]. Human resource professionals frequently used the DOT in the past in the performance of their work.)
1. How easy was it to find the specific occupation you were looking for, and how comprehensive was the information provided about that occupation?
2. What did you think of the occupations O*NET suggested as matching your skills? Was the occupation you are in or preparing for among those listed?
3. As an HR professional, how could O*NET be useful in conducting a job analysis? Explain specifically how you would use the data from this site to assist your organization.
4. As a director of human resources, would you have your staff use this site? Why or why not?
