API

What taxonomy do you use?
AdeptID uses the O*Net Taxonomy of jobs. We have preprocessing technology to match user-submitted jobs to O'Net codes. O'Net is great because it's a common reference point, but many important jobs are not reflected. As such, we make minor modifications to O'Net to increase its usability.

What sources are you using for skills?
Our list of skills is aggregated from both ONet and Lightcast (formerly Emsi Burning Glass).

What sources are you using for wage, education, population, and job posting?
We source this information from Occupational Employment and Wage Statistics (OEWS) from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS), Current Population Survey (CPS) from the Census Bureau, and National (US) Jobs Postings Feeds (EMSI).

Documentation

How should we interpret the skills gap score/category?
The skill gap identifies skills that are important to the destination occupation, but are less commonly used in the origin occupation(s). These represent skills that job seekers may need to learn as part of a successful transition to the destination occupation.

How should we interpret the skills overlap score/category?
The skill overlap identifies transferable skills which are important to both the origin and destination occupation. These provide a strong foundation for job seekers to build from in preparing to enter the target role.

How should we interpret the likelihood of transition score/category?
The score should be used to understand the degree of skill overlap between the past occupation(s) and the target occupation. A high score indicates that the person has many of the skills to be successful at the job. A low score does not mean the person is not fit for the job, it means there are more skills that the person needs to learn to make them better prepared for the job (the skills gap endpoint can help you determine which skills are most important to make that transition).

Employer Data Link

What does the Employer Data Link do?
This tool allows AdeptID partners to seamlessly and securely link their ATS and HRIS systems to AdeptID’s systems so that we can customize results to each partner’s unique context. Our tool allows automated data export so that anyone with proper credentials for the ATS/HRIS can share data directly and securely with AdeptID in minutes. This avoids often frustrating negotiations to get the project prioritized by IT and a typically months-long process to manually export and upload HR data.

How is the data kept secure?
AdeptID protects client data with the highest levels of security and confidentiality. The data is encrypted when in motion and at rest and access to the data is strictly controlled and limited to essential personnel only. All components of AdeptID’s solution are SOC compliant. We use Merge.Dev to extract data from client side systems, Snowflake to warehouse the data and AWS for operations, data storage, and API support. AdeptID and its vendors (Merge.Dev, Snowflake, and AWS) are all SOC 2 Type II compliant.
