Professions API🔗︎

Textkernel's Professions API helps organizing job data according to established, international taxonomies of professions. It deals with spelling variations, synonyms and noise removal. Thus, it enables reliable analytics and effective matching of people and jobs.

Purposes of Job Title Normalization🔗︎

Normalizing job title data to a taxonomy makes it possible to:

  • Correlate talent data from different sources and different languages
  • Reliably compare data from different sources, for instance your talent pool versus market demand
  • Match people and jobs based on a standard vocabulary, thereby increasing conversion

Supported Taxonomies🔗︎

Job titles can be mapped onto the following taxonomies:

  • Textkernel's Profession Normalization Taxonomy (an established, cross-lingual, data-driven taxonomy)
  • ISCO-2008
  • KLDB-2020
  • ONET-2019
  • (Deprecated) ONET-2010
  • UK-SOC-2010
