Utrecht, November 14 - Sometimes it is hard to find somebody a job based on the occupations he or she had in the past. But by mapping the competences to these occupations for this individual, the matching system can look for occupations that fit a similar set of competences thus showing potential jobs that would not have been presented otherwise. When enrolling a jobseeker, the caseworker can help select the most applicable competences and possibly add some that the jobseeker has but are not related to the past occupations. The system puts weights and values to the competences and shows ranked lists of possible jobs. In the webinar Karin Hackensöllner-Ali and Bettina Huber show in more depth how this works for AMS.
From WCC’s side Ludger Weller, closely cooperating with AMS on matching matters, stresses the importance of using this knowledge also for other parts of a comprehensive matching system.
