Understanding Relationships Between Jobs And Necessary Skills

We spend the formative years of our lives acquiring skills that prepare us for our desired careers, and continue to acquire new skills throughout our careers. The decision of skill acquisition for a desired career is often fraught with uncertainty due to lack of information. It is therefore important to study the association between jobs and the skills most commonly associated with these jobs.

Nature and Context

The study of job-skill association has been challenging for two reasons: (i) lack of large-scale data on jobs held and skills acquired by members of the workforce, and (ii) the multiple attribution problem which prevents us from associating the acquisition of a particular skill with a specific job held by a person. With the advent of online professional social networks, large-scale data is now available to study the relationship between jobs and skills.
