I was recently asked where Vocational Experts get their information from?
There a number of sources Vocational Experts use:
- The Dictionary of Occupational Titles
- Selected Characteristics of Occupations
- Job surveys performed by the Vocational Expert
- Services Vocational Experts sign up for which provide job titles, requirements and national and regional job numbers.
If you are working with a lawyer, he or she probably has at least some of these and can verify the skill level, exertional and non-exertional requirements of a jobs the Vocational Expert testified about.
