The OCCU-Find is an essential part of Step 3 in the career exploration process.
The OCCU-Find will introduce you to a variety of careers and will bring together all that you have done in the ASVAB Career Exploration Program. As you explore occupations in line with your interests and skills, you will gain career exploration experience that will last a lifetime. Read these Frequenty Asked Questions to find out more.
What is the OCCU-Find?
The OCCU-Find is a valuable career resource that organizes 400+ occupations by occupational titles, Career Clusters, Interest Codes, and skills.
What kind of Occupational Information Does it Have?
The OCCU-Find is unique in that it links directly to three important career information sources:
These sources include information on typical job duties and the training or education requirements. In addition, the OCCU-Find lists the relative importance of skills for each occupation. These skills can help you figure out the areas you may need to develop to pursue a particular career. However, it is not realistic to make a direct comparison between your current skills and those required for success in an occupation. Remember, you will likely need further education or training before you enter most careers.
How Do I Use the OCCU-Find?
First, you'll need to participate in the ASVAB Career Exploration Program. Once you do that, getting to the OCCU-Find is easy. Just enter your access code (from your ASVAB Summary Results Sheet) and log in to the MyASVAB section of this site.
Once you're logged in to MyASVAB, you can search occupations by occupational titles, Interest Codes, and Career Clusters. If you took the FYI on this site, your results will appear in the sidebar of MyASVAB and allow you to easily search for occupations in your Interest Codes.
(Note: A version of the OCCU-Find is also available in Exploring Careers. The ASVAB Career Exploration Guide which is given to all students who take the ASVAB. This version does not contain detailed occupational information.)
The OCCU-Find was developed originially using information from the O*NET™ 3.1 database; it has been updated to reflect the O*NET™7.0 database.
