US Dept of Labor Study: IT Project Managers needed

IT Project ManagersIT Project Managers – As part of the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) on-going effort to continually increase awareness and support the project management profession, the Institute is collaborating with Research Triangle Institute (RTI) on the Occupational Information Network (O*NET) sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor. The O*NET program provides information regarding more than 900 occupations nationwide. The USDOL’s O*NET data is available free of charge and used by millions of people who are exploring the world of work including students, educators, workforce development staff, veterans, those who’ve been laid off, as well as many others.


PMI is asking for the assistance of IT project managers to help in identifying the role of an “Information Technology Project Manager” — a new and emerging USDOL O*NET standard occupational classification scheduled to debut in the near future. Those who meet the criteria below and are selected by RTI will receive US$40.00 for their time and effort.


A random sample of members will be contacted by telephone.  If you are selected, an O*NET representative will call you to request your voluntary participation.  The call will last approximately 3 to 5 minutes to verify your eligibility and ask if you are willing to complete a set of questionnaires (paper or online versions available).
