Purpose: This document provides step-by-step instructions for creating a new Soft Skill to add to a Job Profile in Calibrate. When you create a skill in Calibrate, it's referred to as an Account skill because it is available account wide.
Audience: This document is meant to be used by Job Profile Editors and Job Profile Reviewers who want to add a Soft Skill to a Job Profile that is not already in the Calibrate library.
Before you begin: Soft Skills are specific behaviors and characteristics that demonstrate general strengths and describe the most important social and behavioral characteristics.
