occupationalCategory

A Schema.org Property

This term is proposed for full integration into Schema.org, pending implementation feedback and adoption from applications and websites.
A category describing the job, preferably using a term from a taxonomy such as BLS O*NET-SOC, ISCO-08 or similar, with the property repeated for each applicable value. Ideally the taxonomy should be identified, and both the textual label and formal code for the category should be provided.

Note: for historical reasons, any textual label and formal code provided as a literal may be assumed to be from O*NET-SOC.
Values expected to be one of these types
CategoryCode
Text
Used on these types
EducationalOccupationalProgram
JobPosting
Occupation
