Identifying and Self-Assessing Your Skills
Every time the Admin of your platform assigns you to a set of skills, upon logging in you will see a pop-up informing you that you can select your skills out of the set, and perform a self-evaluation on them. You may see the pop-up several times, depending on when your Admin activates new sets of skills, and associate them to you.
