What are skills used for
tilr focuses on member skills, rather than resumes and past job titles. This better captures what each member is capable of. Unlike the job posting sites you’re used to, you will need to update a skills section on tilr. In this section, you can add skills that workers will need to be successful in the role you are looking to fill. Since this will be unfamiliar, it’s important to know what skills to include - and how many.
Determining a proficiency level for each skill
When you click ‘Add skills,’ you can search for your job title or a similar job title to begin adding skills. Below each skill is a bar with numbers 1-5, which indicate the level of proficiency needed for a job. You can determine how skilled you would want a worker to be in each skill, but remember that not each skill needs to be ranked. The best practice is to treat the skill rating of 1 as baseline proficiency and the skill rating of 5 as expertise.
When to include a skill
Skills should only be ranked if they are needed for the job you are trying to fill. If any skill is nonessential or can be picked up quickly at the job site, you can leave the ranking for that skill blank. You can add skills from any number of job titles, but you should be sure to only utilize the most relevant skills.
Finding the best matches
By only selecting the skills that are mandatory for the position, your job will be better matched to qualified candidates. Skills that are at the core of a job should never be skipped. If essential skills are not ranked, workers who are not qualified for the job may be matched. Inversely, skills that can be developed during the job or skills that don’t need years of experience to master don’t need to be ranked.
