Talent Profile

TALENT PROFILE is a tool within Endeavor that enables employees to create an up-to-date profile of their career experience, educational background, and professional certifications and skills. It provides a means to make an individual’s talent and qualifications more visible within the University’s talent pool.


Completing the Talent Profile will allow you to document your professional experience and accomplishments for your direct supervisor and his/her superiors to see. This provides greater visibility of your background and skills to your management and enables them to assist in your development and the achievement of your career aspirations.

For the individual, an up-to-date profile can provide a way for you to document in detail your non-ND and University work history, skill sets and credentials. It is a tool that helps you clarify your desired career objectives and your transferrable skills. With Talent Profile, your past experience and competencies can be more available for your management to know the breadth of talent you bring to the organization. And, you are better prepared to interview effectively for job opportunities having carefully thought about your past and present experience and skills.


In Endeavor, an individual’s profile details are only visible to the individual, those who have a reporting relationship with the individual, and to HR staff for talent search purposes.

Peers and managers outside of an individual’s direct reporting line cannot view the individual’s profile information. The only information available to everyone is the data that appears on a department’s organization chart which includes a photo (if uploaded), employee name, position title, email address and telephone number.


Departments may decide whether to require completion of the Talent Profile, or designate certain sections for completion. A department is also may identify specific skills and competencies that are of particular importance in accomplishing the departments goals and processes. If your department asks you to upload a photo, it should be appropriate for a workplace environment. Consult with your supervisor on the requirements set by your department.


Your profile can be accessed and updated at any time using Endeavor. It is a good idea to update it periodically to keep it current with your latest accomplishments and major projects. You do not have to enter all of your updates at once; you can save your latest entries and complete it later. NOTE: Endeavor does not save earlier versions of your profile and updates only those sections/fields that you choose to edit.

What is considered a “representative project?”

Biannual planning and coordination of major academic symposia requiring a variety of actions is representative of a major project; scheduling participants for a department meeting is not. Representative projects are typically large in scope and require multiple, complex actions and the management of several individuals and/or groups for the period of the project.

Can I add other skills? What type of skills should I add?

Endeavor allows you to add skills in addition to what is already in the skills bank. If you decide to add skills unique to your function and role, use the most commonly understood word(s). Also, know that HR will periodically audit the skills bank to eliminate redundancies and label skills in the most universally understood language.

Does anyone have to approve the skills that I select or add?

You and your supervisor should discuss and agree upon skills and the level of proficiency that you propose. There is no formal approval signature required.

What about skills that I learned in the past but no longer use (frequently)?

Include them if the skill is considered foundational to other skills and/or if it is one that you could use at some point in the future.

Is Talent Profile used like a resume repository so that I could be considered for a position that I did not directly apply for?

Talent Profile allows your direct line of management to “drill down” and view your information so it provides an opportunity for your functional management to know details about your background. However, at the present time, Talent Profile is not being utilized as a direct internal recruitment tool.

Will I be given time during my normal work day to fill out the profile?

Yes, you will allowed a reasonable amount of time to enter information and to do updating on at least an annual basis.
