The questions help assess where the person works.
Questions seek to measure knowledge, skills, abilities, behaviors and other characteristics that an individual needs to perform work successfully. The questions ask users to rate themselves. An example of some of the questions:

* Rate your proficiency in the principles and methods of cost-benefit analysis.
* Rate your knowledge of the principles and methods of Internet technologies, tools and delivery systems, including Internet security, privacy policies and user interface issues.
