Select the Back to Profile button to navigate to the Universal Profile Bio page for the user whose Skills Profile you are viewing.

Get Started

Select the Get Started button to begin the Get Started wizard. This wizard guides you through the process of selecting which skills you currently have, which skills you want to develop, and which skills you do not want to develop. See Skills Profile - Get Started Wizard.

Critical Skills

If you belong to an organizational unit (OU) with an associated capability model, a Your Critical Skills table is displayed on your Skills Profile. This table outlines your critical skills, predicted proficiency ratings, targets, and status for the proficiency target. If you are aligned to multiple competency models with different proficiency targets for the same skills, the highest proficiency target and the corresponding status are displayed.

The color associated with the skill tag indicates the skill association, such as developing (green), declared (blue), suggested (white), or hidden (gray).

Your predicted proficiency rating is an amalgamation of all declared ratings for you (Self, Manager, and Peers) and your skill level that can be inferred from your job history and job title.

You can perform actions on a single skill by selecting the options menu to the right of the skill name. You can perform bulk actions on all critical skills by selecting the options menu in the upper-right corner of the Critical Skills section.

Select the heartbeat icon to open the Critical Skills Progress Tracking flyout. This option is only available if enabled in Skills Profile Preferences. See Skills Profile - View Critical Skills Progress.
