It’s Your SkillsSkill Ontology functions like a bridge between job seekers and employers. Skills Ontology aggregates similar job titles, competencies, skills, educations, and so on to build a handy, searchable, database of jobs, organised by discipline. By logically understanding the relationships between job content, competences, experience, and education—a skills ontology helps deliver more relevant search results and recommendations. In short, the Skills Ontology provides an exhaustive and precious resource where skills are organised in such a manner that we can articulate, analyse and infer information on skills in a seamless way.

Skills Ontology is a structured resource of skills. The Skills Ontology helps in identifying skills and experiences in your workforce. It consists of a precious and dynamic resource of capabilities across industries and functions for easy mapping of skills to people and jobs. Skills Ontologies enable matching datasets and help to bring a universal commonness in the use of semantics used for skills.
