The present disclosure relates to a system and method of recommending job titles based on user-provided titles and categories. The system leverages an occupational ontology with multiple levels such as a job title, minor occupational category and major occupational category. The system receives job title or category as inputs from a user. It then classifies the job title or job category into one or more minor job categories. The system then uses a number of recommendation algorithms to generate several job titles. It then presents recommended job titles to the user in one final recommendation list. The user interface could either display all recommended job titles or a subset of job titles. In a variation of the method, the system could sense the user’s reactions to the recommended titles to improve recommendation algorithms over time.
