A recent article out of Profium reports, “Finnish Ministry of Employment and the Economy (TEM) has chosen Profium Sense product via a public procurement procedure to enable semantic search in its employment services. Semantic search will support better matching of labour for enterprises and workforce. Semantic Search will be based on the use of ontologies i.e. conceptual models of jobs and skills which are processed by a patented technology implemented in Profium Sense.”

The article continues, “Semantic Search will integrate information from various sources to improve search results for employers and employees. Open vacancies and CVs will match better with keywords used in search as the underlying concepts can be considered same or similar and thus help users of the semantic search get relevant results with less efforts. For example, a person looking for a vacancy for an Assistant in human resources will find vacancies advertised as HR assistant, HR coordinator, HR clerk or Personnel coordinator.”

The article adds, “In addition, individual employees’ skills are used by the service to construct a semantic profile which helps match employees with jobs independently of the job titles. Semantic search will power, for example, TE-palvelut.fi services which has about 4 million visitors per month depending on the unemployment rate.”
