Skills Profiler - The powerful yet simple tool to map skills

It's Your Skills has developed a comprehensive resource on skills across industries and functions, called the Skills Ontology, and an interface that allows users to pick, tick and rate skills related to jobs and individuals, called the Skills Profiler.

The power of the Skills Ontology and Skills Profiler can be harnessed by application developers in the HR/talent space, through the following five solutions provided by It's Your Skills:

Skills Search Plugin

The plugin enables users to search for skills - auto-completion or auto prompts are provided using data from the Skills Ontology. Users can select skills and add to their individual or job skills profile. The Skills Search Plugin makes adding skills very simple, and eliminates errors from the process of adding skills.

Related Skills Search Plugin

On selecting a skill, other skills within the same category as well as other categories that are related to the selected skill are displayed to the user. This helps the user to identify and add skills that are important to be captured but which may not be at the top of one’s mind.

Skills Search and Rating Plugin

Going beyond just adding skills, using this plugin users can add proficiencies to the selected skills, i.e. how good they are at each skill. Adding proficiencies helps with better matching of jobs to people, and helps to design development activities more effectively.

Skills API

The Skills Mapping API/Web Plugin enables users of an HR application not only to add skills, but also to get recommendations on related skills, to allow rating of proficiencies in skills, and thus to help create a rich skills profile for both jobs and individuals (job applicants, students, or employees).
