How can I share my Skill IQ?

Once you've chosen a Pluralsight IQ you'd like to share, you can use the following sites to share it on. 

Sharing options can be found on the right-hand side of the Skill Assessment page in your profile (example below):

 



Sharing your Skill IQ on Stack Overflow

As a learner on Pluralsight, you can share your Skill IQ on Stack Overflow. You can prove you know your stuff and show your skill level on your Stack Overflow Developer Story, which is designed to help you find employment opportunities and show off your skills.

You’ll need both a Pluralsight account and a Stack Overflow account to get started. If you don’t have those, scroll down to #2 or #3 in this tutorial.

1. I have a Pluralsight account and a Stack Overflow account with a dev story already.

Log in to Pluralsight and Stack Overflow in different tabs. Then, simply go to your Pluralsight Profile page, click the Skill IQ you want to share, then click the Stack Overflow icon on your Skill Assessment page. 

 

This automatically shares your Skill IQ to your Dev Story. Add any tags, and save

Note: You can't change tags or the assessment date after you click Save. If you need to change tags, go to the Gear icon in the top right and delete the Skill IQ, then re-add your Skill IQ to change any tags necessary.

Now your Skill IQ shows on your Dev Story.

2. I have a Pluralsight account, but not a Stack Overflow account or Developer Story.

Head over to Stack Overflow.com, and create an account.

Note: If you choose the email and password login option, you'll need to click the link in your email to activate your account.

Then, click on Developer Story in the top left navigation. 

Fill out your Developer Story with the following details: your name; at least 2 skills you're interested in; location; your current employer, what technologies you use at your employer, and your responsibilities (75 characters). On the next box, you'll add more skills you're interested in. This completes setting up your Developer Story.

Note: You must fill out all the information in the Developer Story dialog boxes to create your Developer Story.

Then, scroll up to #1 on this page and continue sharing your Skill IQ.

3. I don't have a Pluralsight account.

Click here to see subjects you can take a skill assessment in, to share on your Stack Overflow Developer Story. Create a Pluralsight account and start taking a Skill IQ assessment.

When you’ve got your Skill IQ, scroll up to #1 on this page to share your Skill IQ on Stack Overflow.
