Map skills profile
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 Skills Search Plugin gives access to the skills in the Skills Ontology along with an intuitive interface. This plugin lets users search for skills and add them one by one on selecting the suggestions. The selected skills can be mapped to jobs and individuals.
