Super Hero Talent Profiles

Posted by Pramesh Vashist on October 11, 2010

Iron Man 2 released on DVD last week.

I remember watching a scene from this movie where Happy Hogan is teaching Tony Stark’s candidate for new assistant (Scarlett Johansson) some kickboxing moves and Stark while watching, flips through her talent profile, noting that she is highly qualified and can speaking multiple languages including French, Italian, Russian and Latin.

As if we needed further endorsement for the need of a comprehensive talent profile for ourselves! Even superheroes need to showcase their awesome talent, lest their skills be underestimated.

So for those of you who think that talent profiles are just for HR, think again. You may be a great job fit for a position you covet, but do not show up on anyone’s radar because your skills do not reflect in your talent profile. So update your profile to advertise your job skills and reap the benefits of professional growth and work in your dream super-job, quite possibly one that may some day require a commute in an iron suit.

  1. Yup – although only relevant if someone is actually paying attention to the talent profiles 😉
