Creating Job Profiles

A job profile is a collection of job-related information that defines the purpose, responsibilities, and requirements of a specific job role. In the process of defining a job profile, you specify the required competencies by associating skills from the competency library with a job profile. These required competencies allow managers to determine whether employees meet the required skill levels for specific jobs.

It is important to associate the appropriate skills and minimum skill levels with job profiles so that employees, managers, and administrators can integrate skills analysis and management across the entire work force.

Job profiles can be imported to Competency Management using EAI. For more information about importing job profile information using EAI, see Overview: Siebel Enterprise Application Integration. Job profiles can also be created using the administration screens.

To create a job profile, the relevant job code, job family, salary grade, EEO Category, and FLSA must already exist. For more information, see Setting Up Compensation Planning.

This task is a step in Process of Setting Up Competency Management.

To create a job profile

  1. Navigate to the Administration - Competency screen > Job Profile Administration view.

    NOTE:  Before you create a new job profile, make sure the job profile you want to create does not already exist. Query the Job Profile list using the name of the job profile you want to create. If no records are returned, create the new job profile.

  2. In the Job Profile list, add a new record, and then complete the fields in the More Info form.

    The following table describes some of the preconfigured fields. Your Human Resources organization may want to track different fields; those fields should be configured when the application is deployed.
