And is there one?
Let me explain, Dennis Pearce and I are looking at ways to increase our number of completed profiles in our Jive community (Innovate). That problem isn't unique among most us Jive CM's (and if it isn't a problem in your community, fess up right now because I have questions for you), but what I am struggling with is explaining the difference between a "skill" versus an "expertise."
Then there is a different "expertise" when you click into my profile:
For people who are struggling with what to put in their own profile and for people who want to endorse a skill for someone else, I would like to be able to do a little cheat sheet and provide some examples. The problem is that I'm stalling out on explaining a "skill" vs an "expertise." Searching across the Internet I find the words are used so interchangeably that there doesn't appear to be much of a distinction between the two. Blerg.
So, fellow Jive CM's, care to share how are you explaining this "Skills and Expertise" portion of profiles to your communities?
I think you just did explain it:
Skills - what you say about yourself
Expertise - what others say about you
Seems simple enough
