This paper describes the development of a toolkit based on the semantic analysis of course data using the eXchanging Course Related Information – Course Advertising Profile (XCRI-CAP) information model. Based on the XCRI-CAP 1.2 standard, our research focused on providing the means for semantically comparing course descriptions and curriculum documentation. The paper provides an overview of how the JISC funded MUSAPI (Musket-Salami Project Integration) project resulted in the creation of a web service allowing (i) raising awareness regarding the architecture of job profiles and the employability terminology used in career services, (ii) identifying potential job opportunities for student graduates and/or university applicants, (iii) ranking ‘real’ job opportunities filtered according to a range of criteria and (iv) mapping job opportunities to courses in higher education institutions offering the necessary skills and knowledge.
