Functional Job Titles and Exact Job Titles

Functional job title titles are helpful in determining broadly the number of people who could perform a role. 

Exact job titles are useful in determining exactly how many documents are labeled with a particular title.

A functional job title search answers the question, “who could do this job?” We find the number of workers who could perform a job by mapping the job title to the closest matching government government occupation codes (SOCs) and any pertinent skills. I.e. a search for a functional title of “C++ Developer” will return profiles that map to the occupation “Software Developers, Applications” with a skill of “C++”. This gives us a proxy of how many workers in this area with the required skillset could likely perform this role.

An exact job title search answers the question, “who is called this job title?”  Exact job title will return only results that match the job title entered. I.e. a search of profiles for “C++ Developer” will only return results of profiles or postings that had “C++ Developer” listed as their title.
