The primary objective of this initiative was to develop a tool to optimize organizational and individual outcomes when matching enlisted personnel applicants or trainees to entry-level jobs. A core premise of the person-job matching tool is that organizational and individual outcomes for the Air Force are optimized by the effective management of job-relevant talent pools. Talent pools are effectively managed when the aggregate supply of talent within the applicant or accessions population are optimally matched to jobs or job clusters to minimize over- and under-qualification, within and across jobs. Accordingly, the tool recommends best job matches, based on the projected payoffs from combining the selected inputs person, job, organization when matching people among qualifying jobs to minimize the over or under supply of talent. The current report summarizes and documents the Year One prototype of the person-job matching tool.
