A p p e n d ix . O c c u p a tio n a l D e s c rip tio n s
The prim ary purpose of preparing job descriptions for the Bureau's wage surveys is to assist its field staff in classifying into appropriate
occupations workers who are em ployed under a variety of payroll titles and different work arrangements from establishm ent to establishment and
from area to area. This perm its the grouping of occupational wage rates representing com parable job content. Because o f this emphasis on
interestablishment and interarea com parability o f occupational content, the Bureau's job descriptions may differ significantly from those in use in
individual establishments or those prepared for other purposes. In applying these job descriptions, the Bureau's field econom ists are instructed
to exclude working supervisors; apprentices; lea rn ers; beginners; train ees; and handicapped, p art-tim e, tem porary, and probationary w orkers.

program s with m ost of the following ch aracteristics: New program s are frequently tested
and introduced; scheduling requirem ents are of critica l importance to m inim ize downtime;

a ccom plished, and the relationships between various steps o f the problem solving routine;
plans the full range o f program ing actions needed to efficiently utilize the com puter system
in achieving d esired end products.
At this lev e l, program ing is difficult because com puter equipment m ust be organized to
produce several in terrelated but d iverse products from numerous and diverse data elem ents.
A wide variety and extensive number of internal p rocessin g actions m ust occu r. This requires
such actions as developm ent of com m on operations which can be reused, establishm ent of
linkage points between operation s, adjustments to data when program requirem ents exceed
com puter storage capacity, and substantial manipulation and resequencing of data elements
to form a highly integrated program .
May provid e functional d irection to low er level p rogram ers who are assigned to a ssist.

calibrating, tuning, and alining.
Work is nonrepetitive and requires a knowledge o f the theory and p ra ctice of electron ics
pertaining to the use o f general and specialized electron ic test equipment; trouble analysis; and
