The results of the research reveal informations about the information professionals working in Slovakia. The synthetic knowledge about the information profession summarize into the layout of the job analysis of an information professional. In the layout of the job analysis I separate the knowledge, skills and abilities of information professionals into six areas: information science, interaction with content, interaction with people, business, information and area of special attainments. The utilization of the designed job analysis may be useful in the following areas: establishment of demands of applicants interested in the profession, assignment into a concrete position, classification of the salary banding, identification of responsibilities within the organization, identification of incorrect processes, definition of competencies. In the area of education the job analysis may accommodate the reassessment of educational guidelines or a development of new educational schedule in further development of individual growth or consultant activity.
