Example use case:
Let’s say you’re seeking to fill a cost accounting role. You need someone who is good at accounting, possesses excellent communication skills, has experience with M&A, is familiar with advanced statistical analysis, and holds a specific certification for a particular country.
Search for the skills associated with the role (highlighted above) in the Skills Library to help you develop the right skills taxonomy and uncover other relevant skills for the position.
The skills span a variety of traditional categories — such as competencies, qualifications, certifications, hard and soft skills, and region-specific needs — so you can define roles by using the criteria for success on the job.
