Profile is your own space in CompetencyCore to keep track of your competencies and qualifications. Building a profile helps your career development because you'll see the jobs you match to in your organization. Think of your profile as a toolkit that you can update as you complete tasks and participate in activities.
In this article:
1 Setting up my current role
Access Profile in your main menu. The first step is to make sure your job shows up beside your profile picture. This helps CompetencyCore suggest items to add based on job requirements. If it's not already set up, click the Add current role link. Search for and add your job.
2 Adding qualifications
Click Add New on the right side of the page and select Quick Add (from current role) to open a window listing all of the requirements on your job. You can change the level and deselect items that don't apply. Click Submit. If validation is required, you'll be prompted to send this request to your manager. You might need to validate some types of items like competencies and not others like education, but these decisions are set up by your administrator.
You can also browse and add qualifications that are not required on your current role. Click Add New on the right side of the page and select an item type. Suggested items are based on your job, but you can also click the All tab to browse items. You can select multiple items and click Done to close the window. Click Set level... beside a new item to select your current level.
3 Viewing job matches
A progress bar indicates the completion status of your profile. Setting up your current role, adding items, and setting levels all increase this status. Once your profile reaches 60% (or a percentage customized by your administrator), you'll see your top three job matches.
Click the Job Matches tab below your profile picture to view a more detailed list. Click a job name to open a breakdown of the job requirements compared with your profile.
4 Building a career path
If the Career Path module is installed on your site, click the Career Path tab beside Job Matches. To generate an automatic path, click the Add target role link. Type in your target role, select it from the drop-down, and click Discover.
To browse jobs, click Explore. You'll see a list of jobs at the next level displayed in tiles. The percentage on each tile shows how closely a job matches your profile. Click the Show related roles link to see roles at your current level. Selecting a job tile displays similar jobs at the next level. Select a job from each level until you've found your target. On the right side of the page, you'll see how well a selected job matches your profile by library type. Click the Full Job Description button to see an item by item comparison.
To filter jobs by group, click Filters. Type in a name like "Finance" or "Human Resources" and select it from the drop-down. You path is redrawn to display only jobs from that group. Once you're happy with the path, click Complete Path. Select whether to share or keep your path private. Keep in mind that shared paths are visible on pages accessed by your manager and HR administrators.
After confirming your path, it's displayed in the header so you can keep your path in mind when reviewing your profile. Now when you click the Career Path tab, you'll see the details of each job in your path displayed in tabs.
