There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

Identifying Necessary Job Skills

Past efforts by industrial psychologists, business groups, and others to characterize "job requirements" provide a starting point in developing a SCANS approach to identifying the skills required by work. These past efforts have developed a structure for examining and communicating job requirements. An examination of these past efforts and the viewpoints they represent can help SCANS refine its own viewpoint and focus its efforts. We begin with a brief discussion of general approaches or perspectives on job requirements. This is followed by a compilation of "lists" of skill requirements with brief comments on each of the different organizing frameworks.
