All such profiles that are prevalent in the system will be evaluated based on the ranking system. Every profile in the system will be awarded a score. The profiles will be given a score based on 5 factors which include education, experience, adaptability, language ability and Age. Each of the factor will have a maximum and minimum scoring point range. Based on their individual responses, the score will be awarded. All profiles based on the score will be awarded ranks.
