Abstract : A comprehensive work survey form was developed to study thirty-five clerical occupations in the Federal sector. The purpose of the survey was to develop new selection procedures which are not only job related, but which also meet the requirements of the Uniform Guidelines on Employee Selection Procedures. Work behavior statements were obtained from previous job analysis studies, existing inventories and the Dictionary of Occupational Titles. The statements were then reviewed by three experienced incumbents in each of the thirty-five occupations. The final survey form incorporated the comments of these subject matter experts, and contained a listing of 174 work behaviors which crossed over the thirty-five occupations being studied. The survey form has been completed by approximately 3000 incumbents, nationwide. Data analysis will show the degree of overlap between these occupations and aid in the development of new selection procedures.
