Job Sleuth

Hudson Ellis
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 Finder, Advanced Search, Transferability Search, and GOE browser make finding the right job 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 1.10.2
Version 1.10.2 fixed two bugs:
• fixed issue with iPhone 5s screen devices showing the wrong strength level in list views (Thank you Phillip for identifying this issue); and
• fixed bug keeping advanced search results from being able to sort.

Very exciting new features and improvements in Version 1.10, with the Advanced Search getting a major upgrade!
The Advanced Search improvements include:
• Search for occupations by their Work Force Requirements (i.e. how much involvement they have with data, people, or things);
• Search by General Educational Development levels (i.e., the reasoning, math, and language requirements of the occupation).
• Change each search component to look for the exact value or the minimum of the value you specify (you used to only be able to search by the maximum). Have you ever wondered what are the SVP 9 jobs? Just swipe left and find out!
Other improvements and bug fixes include:
• Better printing/emailing formatting to page-break correctly and adjust dynamically;
• Added change log intro and version history page;
•.Fixed bug in Transferability view where hitting group information button would cause crash;
•.Fixed bug in color of email header bar; and
•.Updated all WebViews screens to have consistent theme.

Version 1.10.1 fixed a small bug that made the new change log intro screen I worked hard on not show up.
