Job Profiling

Job profiling is identifying the skills workers need to be successful at an occupation, and measuring how the skills of your workers compare to that standard.

What Does Job Profiling Include?

We ask workers questions about what they do on the job, their job tasks, and what is involved for skills like Reading, Document Use, Numeracy and Oral Communication.
