Qualifications are the characteristics or skills needed or requested for specific positions. Qualification Categories are classifications of individual qualifications, used to group the qualifications for use in job postings. Where qualifications are specific characteristics or skills required for a position, qualification categories are broader buckets into which the specific qualifications are placed.
For example, WAN/LAN interfacing is a specific skill Mavis requires on her team. That qualification is a part of the broader networking qualification category.
Qualification Categories make it easier to find Qualifications when creating Job Postings or SOWs.
Qualifications are grouped and associated to job postings through the Qualification Category admin object.
