    Last decade, the competences, competency and competency profiling have been recognized as the core information and process to provide basics for implementation of efficient interchangeable widely recognized education and worldwide employment. Competences are components of a job which are reflected in behaviour that are observable in a workplace. A list of the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to perform a job well is determined as competency profile. Types of skills listed in a competency profile depend on the job and the work environment. Generally, employers make competency profiles either to evaluate candidates for a job or determine where an employee needs to improve performance to meet the needs of the position. Competency profiles are usually used as a part of competency-based human resources management. They are similar to job descriptions, but they provide ways to evaluate how the employee's skill set and job performance measure up to the requirements. Preparing EQF and NQF based job / profession profiles and related sets of competences (knowledge, skills, other / wider competences) is still ongoing process. In the contribution we present the theory and model behind the competence profiler we developed, the data architecture and the user interface of the e-tool itself. As can be observed, although it was developed for competency profiling in chemical engineering and contains exemplary selection of ISCO job profiles, its usage is not limited for areas or fields of expertise or job / profession profiles.
