hello all, I happened to read through the draft for AC21 same or similar occupation rule and I am a little worried.. I work for a medium sized tech company that sells software solutions to address network and application performance management. So my labor was filed under the SOC code 15-1031 (as per the 2000 system http://www.bls.gov/soc/2000/soc_c1d1.htm), so the same under the SOC2010 would be 15-1132 http://www.bls.gov/soc/2010/soc151132.htm While my duties listed in the job description do match up with the above SOC codes, I primarily use my computer networking skills on a daily basis. (So instead of troubleshooting live networks, I use our tool to do similar stuff to provide support) With the same/similar clarification I was anticipating that I would be able to accept opportunities as a network operations engineer if need be in future using the AC21 rule. Infact I did have two offers early this year that I let go because of the whole VB anticipation.. But the SOC code for network engineers seems to be 15-1152 http://www.bls.gov/soc/2010/soc151152.htm The proposed AC21 clarification seems to be totally based on broad occupation + detailed occupation which includes the last three digits of the SOC. So would that mean, if I accept a network engineering position I cannot reuse my labor? Experts please shed some light.
