You can use skill gap analysis to compare a person’s skill profile with a profile for a particular job as of a particular date.

You can use a skill profile analysis to see a list of a person’s kills and to see a skill wheel that graphically represents a person’s actual skill levels compared to target skill levels.

For more information about skills and skill profiles, see About skills.

You can compare a worker with the job that he or she currently holds, or you can compare an applicant with a job that they applied for. This comparison helps identify strengths and weaknesses in a person’s skill profile, and can indicate appropriate skill development activities for a worker or help to find the right applicant for a job.
