Most occupations exist in multiple sectors (e.g. computer programmers routinely work in the information, health, finance, government, and education sectors). Lets say a person pursued a career as a nurse, but later decides working in a hospital or doctor's office is not what he/she wants to do. The education sector also employes nurses as instructors, and the finance and insurance sector employes nurses for underwriting.

Understanding the cross-sector dynamics of a particular occupation is important for employers, employees, and educators.
