I started my PhD at the IER in 2020, investigating the demand for skills by employers in the labour market in Chile. Nowadays, the automatization of work is a phenomenon that is rising worldwide as one of the factors shaping demand for new skills in the workplace. In this scenario, techniques such as text mining and machine learning algorithms on online labour platforms represent an opportunity to access a significant amount of data. The analysis of demand for skills compared with the skills of the workforce would be helpful to update educational and training programmes in mismatched situations, especially in developing countries.
