There are six broad groupings of career specialties/occupations that have common skills and knowledge.

There are 16 groupings of occupations and broad industries based on commonalities. Technological advances and global competition have transformed the nature of work. Because jobs now require more knowledge, better skills, and more flexible workers than ever before, workers must be prepared to change jobs and careers several times, continually updating their knowledge and skills.
