What is a Skills Profile?
Skills Profile, like health profile or financial profile is all about one's skills or skills of a job
Skills Profile is a comprehensive and in-depth qualitative and quantitative information on one's skills.

It's Your Skills uses the word skills liberally to include (what we normally refer to as) skills

- in principles and concepts
- in tools and technologies
- in domains
- in roles

Further, it covers both the dimensions of skills i.e.
Functional / Technical Skills
Behavioral or also referred to as Soft Skills

Thus the Skills Profile is a complete and precise mapping of skills covering all aspects of one' talent or skills profile

Skills are articulated or expressed by
Individuals (such as employees or applicants)
Jobs (such as job providers or companies)

The Skills Profile is the same template for jobs and individuals

Skills Profile is a simple, yet profound innovation from It's Your Skills
This is in stark contrast with what we see in the world today where we have two different templates. One, for jobs i.e. Job Descriptions and two, for individuals i.e. resumes
