Government Code Career Index Search

The career indexes included here were created by the governments of the United States and Canada as job classification systems. The structure of each index represents different organizational philosophies, but you should be able to find the career you want through either of them. The indexes are: the National Occupational Classification (NOC) Index and the Occupational Information Network (O*NET)-Standard Occupational Classification System (SOC) index. The O*NET-SOC index was created by the U.S. government; the NOC index is Canada's career classification system.

  1. To go to the Advanced Search page, click the Advanced Search link to the right of the main Search box at the top of the site, or click the Advanced Search footer link.
  2. In the Government Code Career Index Search section of the page:
    • Type the NOC or O*NET-SOC code into the appropriate field and click the magnifying glass button to the right of the field. (To view a list of index codes, click the NOC or O*NET-SOC to display a pop-up list of codes.)
    • Any profession profiles in Ferguson's Career Center that are associated with the selected index code display in the results.
