Abstract : A job inventory covering six specialties in the accounting and finance career field, and consisting of 468 tasks grouped under 14 duty categories was administered to airmen in 18 major air commands. Incumbents of all skill levels completed a background information section and rated on a 7-point scale the relative time spent on tasks. The airmen also indicated on a 7-point scale how they learned to do the tasks performed, whether from school training or work experience. Job descriptions are presented for 21 groups selected according to background information variables. Included are six specialty groups and 15 groups with differing length of military service. Duty and task descriptions are presented for the accounting and finance total sample and for 60 significant job types identified by the automated job clustering program. (Author)
