What is Skills Profiling?

Skills Profiling from It's Your Skills is a simple, standardized and structured way of mapping skills of jobs and individuals powered by the most comprehensive skills taxonomy.

We are pleased to announce the Skills API launch very soon

Constantly updated

The Skills landscape keeps changing and we track new skills that keep emerging and add to the skills Library


The skills are well classified in different areas so that we get a meaningful and complete presentation on one's skills

Acronyms and Synonyms

Skill referred in different ways (such as Web Marketing or Internet Marketing) or using Acronyms (such as Enterprise Java Beans or EJB) are normalized

Ready to Use

Trigger ideas: quickly experiment with site colors & patterns, try out web typography and much more.

Contextual Reference

Skills search allows for one to understand in what context a particular skill is being referred to

Universal Scale

While rating proficiencies on skills, either a five point scale or a binary selection is used while the legends for the scales may vary

Usage of the Skills Profiler

The Skills Profiler can be used for two key information bases in the talent landscape (only these two really matter)

And while creating either the Individual Skills Profile or Job Skills Profile, we thus get a profile that is

Simple - No English, you can express the words and phrases that you have in mind on to the profile

Structured - Easy to appreciate structure for the skills and get precise context in which skills are referred

Datafied - We get the proficiency levels and not just the skills

Similarilty - Both, the job skills profile and the individual skills profile have the same structure
