Utilizing large language models to normalize job titles
Tuesday, June 20, 2023
At Paychex, we used large language models like SBERT to match client inputted job titles to a taxonomy of 800+ job categories provided by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. Our multi-level architecture combines SBERT with neural network classifiers to achieve high matching accuracy. The SBERT model was fine-tuned in a Siamese network approach to improve its performance. The product will be available to our clients to recommend the best matching BLS codes for their inputted job titles. Normalizing job titles will provide Paychex clients with advanced wage or retention analytics.
