Web Plugins & Skills API help in developing applications on jobs, HR, talent development, talent analytics
and so on, by enabling mapping of the skills of jobs and individuals in a more effective manner.
IYS offers five powerful resources
Skills Search Plugin
Users can search for skills, which are auto-completed or auto-prompted from the Skills Ontology. They can select the relevant skills and add them to their profile or job. This makes adding skills extremely easy and error free.
Related Skills Search Plugin
On selecting a skill, more skills within the same category as well as more categories related to the selected skill are displayed to the user. This helps to bring out skills that are important to be captured but which may not be at the top of their mind.
Skills Search & Rating Plugin
Going beyond adding skills, here users can add proficiencies to skills, i.e. how good they are at each of their skills. Adding proficiencies helps in better matching of jobs to people, and also aids better design and development activities.
Skills Profiling Plugin
Users may feel the need to qualify or elaborate on their skills. This plugin allows users, apart from using all the features above, to also add descriptive comments to their selected skills.
The Skills API provides access to a robust back-end for the development of HR applications with customized functionalities, bringing the rich skills data of the Skills Ontology into your own application interface.
Highlights of the Skills Profiler
The Skills landscape keeps changing. We continuously track new skills that keep emerging and add them to the Skills Library.
The skills are well categorized across different areas and industries to enable a meaningful and complete presentation of one’s skills.
The skills search functionality allows for a better understanding of the context in which a particular skill is being referred to.
Rating the proficiency of one's skills is possible through selection on a scale of five, or through binary selection. The legends for the scales may vary.
