How do I add desired skills in the Career Everest page as an employee?

As part of your career development plan, you can search and add the desired skills in your Career Everest page to identify the skills you need to develop to be successful at the peak of your career.

This should be completed after you add your career drivers and complete the Daily Activities exercise. Career drivers and your responses in the Daily Activities exercise will affect the skills you want to develop. To view a list of default Bridge skills, visit the Bridge Default Skills PDF.


  • The skills you add to the Career Everest page will also display in your Bridge directory profile.
  • Adding a skill to your profile will automatically add you to that skill community.
