The week before Christmas is a time of commercial opportunism. Everywhere you turn there are advertisements and billboards trying to get your attention.

If you are an IT professional and you find yourself with a few free minutes as your project manager realises that there is no way to get everything done before Friday, why not have a look at the IT Professional Profile tool from the National Skills Academy for IT.

You can benchmark your skills against the national occupation standards for IT and produce your own personal skills profile. You can share your profile via a unique web page. Some employers might use the profile for staff appraisal or recruitment. I know that I would, if I employed anyone.

It’s completely free to use, but you have to register with your email address if you want to save your profile. Then the National Skills Academy for IT will send you emails from time to time.

Let me know what you think. I’d welcome some feedback from trusted experts like you. If you like it, why not tell your friends or adopt it as a tool to use in your team… just in time for the performance review season.

Did I mention that I helped create the IT Professional Profile?… Well it is Christmas.
