ONETr-package: Efficient authenticated interaction with the O*NET API.

Description Details Author(s) References Examples

Description

This package provides a series of functions designed to enable users to easily search and interact with occupational data from the O*NET API <www.onetonline.org>. The package produces parsed and listed XML data for custom interactions, or pre-packaged functions for easy extraction of specific data (e.g., Knowledge, Skills, Abilities, Work Styles, etc.).

Details

This package should be used to explore or extract specific occupational data from the O*NET API. The setCreds function should be called with the proper arguments prior to the use of any other package functions- the function stores one's API credentials for use by the other functions throughout the session. keySearch allows a search by keyword (e.g., "psychologist") and prints the search results, from which occupational SOC codes can be extracted. SOC codes can then be used with socSearch to print or store data about a specific occupation. For a list of functions designed for extract of specific data points (e.g., Knowledge, Skills, Abilities, etc.), please read the documentation and explore the package.
