Conference Proceeding Article
SFIA skills framework is widely popular among education institutions and ICT industries. The framework provides ICT skills profiles which can be a valuable resource that supports the career planning of a student. However, currently a student does not have a method or approach to exploit the SFIA framework to align his or her competencies that he or she has acquired during the education program, to the skills defined in the SFIA framework. In this paper, we present a solution model for generating a skills report based on individual's competencies and experiences. In particular, we focus on Information Systems students' profiles. Student skill generator takes in curriculum and LinkedIn profile's data as an input and generates student's skills report which is aligned with SFIA framework. Moreover, the system also generates a list of recommended jobs in ICT sector that match the student's skills. We evaluated our solution model on an undergraduate core curriculum; Bachelor of Science (Information Systems Management) degree program BSc (ISM), offered by the School of Information Systems (SIS), Singapore Management University (SMU) and LinkedIn profiles of student from year 3, year 4 and alumni.
