Job Sleuth

The DOT is now as convenient as your iPhone! Social Security professionals never need to worry about having a hearing or client meeting without this invaluable resource, including all of its companion publications.

What users are saying:

"Excellent app – works like a charm and worth every penny. I have Job Browser on all my computers, but now I have the DOT/SCO information in my pocket (on my iPhone). This means I can use it in meetings and many other places where I don’t have my computer." ~ David Camp (SSDB Attorney)

Job Sleuth "is a great asset for Social Security Attorneys and Vocational Experts to use while interviewing clients in their office or at the hearing [...] It is a MUST have for a Social Security Disability Practitioner." ~ Ed P. (Vocational Consultant)


- All 12,741 job codes in the DOT are present and accounted for, along with detailed explanations of each of their elements;

- Every job includes the information from the DOT, SCO, MPSMS, Work Fields, Aptitudes, and Temperaments and is presented in an easily accessible manner (over 65 fields in each code);

- Airprint compatibility allows you to print any job's complete information or the results from your searches.

- Email all of the job's information or searches to yourself or anyone else for later review or reference.

- A completely local database means you don't ever have to worry about losing signal or not having access to wi-fi.


- Never worry about lugging around two huge volumes to hearings and meetings.

- Title Search, Code Search, Multi-Code Search, Advanced Search, Transferability Search, and GOE browser make finding the right job(s) a breeze, much faster than could have been possible with the physical volumes.

- Less than 1/4 the price of the physical volumes, and 1/8 the price of many PC applications with similar features.

What's new in version 1.11.2
Version 1.11.1 and 1.11.2: These quick updates fixed three bugs:
• One caused the Advanced Search results to disappear when a user changed the sort method (Thank you Hannah G. for spotting this bug and letting me know);
• The other kept users from being able to select the GOE subgroup from a DOT code and see what other DOT codes share the same GOE subgroup; and
• A minor cosmetic fix.

Version 1.11: MAJOR NEW FEATURE: Multi-Code search added
• Add up to 6 codes into your Code Search at once and bring them all into a search list for easy access
• Multi-Code Search is perfect for loading multiple occupations during vocational testimony during a hearing
• Improved the interface for Code Search to reveal a preview of the entered code's job title, SVP, and strength rating before engaging search
Our verdict: Good
  • + Job Sleuth is a highly rated app (5-star).
  • The app is pricier than similar apps available on the App Store.
  • + Job Sleuth is currently ranked #52 in paid Business apps for iPad.
