Discovering top candidates in your talent pool for the right jobs

One of Skilltype’s standout features is its ability to reveal the hidden talent already residing within your organization. By leveraging our extensive Skills Ontology and rich data analytics, we help you discover untapped potential in your existing staff. Finding the perfect candidate might be as simple as looking within your current talent pool.

  • Empower your team members to fill skill gaps in order to apply for new job postions.
  • Significantly shorten or even eliminate the need for an external job search.

Targeted talent acquisition when you need new skills for new jobs

  • Advanced recommendation engine ensures targeted job posting visibility.
  • Intelligent matching pairs open positions with aligned profiles.
  • Uses a controlled vocabulary of:
    • Job categories
