Talent Profile

The Talent Profile provides Managerial and Professional staff with the opportunity and a tool to maintain a current internal profile of your work history, education, career interests, achievements and more. Having a completed employee profile will:

  • Provide your manager and the leadership within your department with visibility into your background and the activities that have enhanced your professional experience
  • Provide you with a summary of accomplishments and achievements when discussing career interests and development planning with your manager, mentor, or other individuals across campus
  • Allow your manager and Human Resources to understand your background more thoroughly to match your skills with open, critical jobs
  • Create the opportunity to showcase your important work on Yale projects
  • Allow for automatic updates of your Yale work history as you move through jobs within the University
  • Enable the ability to have a professional profile with a business appropriate photo available for printing “on demand”
