Occupational profiles identify the tasks and skill levels required across providers and related industries. Occupational profiles are created by summarizing a set of related, very detailed job profiles. Job profiles allow a more in-depth understanding of the job-specific foundational skills needed for success in each position. As a result, employers are better able to identify and invest in employees who can make real contributions to the bottom line.
