To achieve this,
- people need to create (and maintain) a file that contains their key 6/6B information. I call that their 6/6B Profile (6/6BP), and
- every employee needs to create a similar profile for all of their job openings, and
- systems needs to be developed to match the profiles.
Currently, the following is being done along these lines.
- Students and others are developing ePortfoilios of their work and some of that is standardized.
- CIDS are doing similar work.
- Career OneStop
- O*NET has classifed over 800 occupations (that represent millions of jobs) with 14 descriptors.
- New York recently announced job matching system callled ... that more intelligentyl mathes people to work.
- HResume HR-XML
- Google jobs
How long will it be before all of this integrates into a set of standards for easy job matching.
