The Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) Code system is a federal standard used to classify workers into occupational categories. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has more information about the SOC Code system.

The SOC Lookup Tool below helps employers and agents look up SOC Codes using an employee’s job title or job description. Enter one or more descriptions below. Then, click Search. You can also search by full or partial SOC Code.

If you maintain an employee spreadsheet or database, add columns for employee job titles and SOC Codes. You can then sort your spreadsheet or database by employee job titles and enter those titles into the SOC Tool. Next, copy the matching SOC Code into your spreadsheet or database, so you can easily provide that information in NCSUITS.

You can search for multiple categories, and use more than one keyword by providing space between words.


Note: Results below are pre-sorted ascending by SOC Code and Title. To change the sort order, click on the column headings.
You may filter the results by clicking the ‘funnel’ icon OR refining your search criteria.
