Occupational Profile Tool

The Occupational Profile Tool (OPT) allows users to browse, create, edit and share occupational profiles in the field of Earth Observation and Geographic Information.

Occupational profiles can be characterized as generic, recurring prototypical job descriptions, including the required knowledge and skills to be able to perform them. They can be used as a basis for creating recurrent job offers made available by any kind of organisation.

Profiles are linked to the EO4GEO Body of Knowledge (BoK) for EO/GI-specific concepts and skills, to the European Skills/Competences and Occupation (ESCO) classification for transversal and cross-sectoral skills and to UNESCO’s International Standard Classification of Education: Fields of Education and Training (ISCED-F) classification for the application field.

You join or create your organization in the Organization page from the dropdown menu. User accounts and organizations are shared between all the tools, which means you can use the same user and password for all the tools.

Your created content can be made publicly (for everybody) or privately (only for organization members) visible.

Target audiences: Companies and public institutions.

Examples of use:

  • A company creates a set of occupational profiles frequently demanded inside the company.
