Our Projects

O*NET Academy

Maher & Maher has supported O*NET (the Nation’s Occupational Information Network) since the late 1990’s.  The goal of this U.S. Department of Labor/Employment & Training Administration project has been to enhance the features, functionality, and content of the O*NET Knowledge Site and O*NET Academy Site, develop O*NET training support tools, and deliver O*NET instructor-led and virtual training nationally. Throughout this contract period, Maher has continually provided expert advice and guidance in identifying, and designing dynamic content to support awareness, training and learning around the best practices for using the Nation’s Occupational Information Network: http://www.onetacademy.org/.
