SOCRATES

SOCRATES is a tool to assist Workforce Center staff in

performing regional labor market analysis. Staff uses it to generate

lists of targeted industries and targeted occupations. It is also

excellent for researching regional labor markets in Texas and

identifying occupational training possibilities. Using information

gathered from SOCRATES helps narrow a dislocated worker’s job

search.

C-400.2.10

Moving to

Intensive

Services

After initial assessment, background information, labor market

information, and identification of whether suitable employment is

available, determine one of the following steps:

• Job search

• Referral to training at the intensive services level, in an

occupation that will allow the participant to meet the goal of

earning 80 percent of his or her previous wage, to the maximum

extent possible. However, in any case, the participant must not

be denied training only because the 80 percent wage retention

goal cannot be met.
