Assess your skills and dive in

Feeling overwhelmed? Wondering where to start? No worries. Skills has many tools to help you find what will be most valuable to you and jump in.

Start out by taking a skill assessment to receive your Skill IQ. This measures your current skill level based on others in your field. Skill assessments are around 20 questions and can be completed in as little as five minutes. There are hundreds to choose from and they include the most relevant technologies in use today.

From there you’ll receive personalized recommendations on courses, channels, and more to help you address your skill gaps and level up. You can periodically retake skill assessments to see the progress you’ve made toward your goals. On a business plan? Don’t worry—plan admins and managers can’t see individual Skill IQ scores.

Want more ways to find the content you need? You can use the search box at the top of the platform to find content on a specific technology. You can also browse the courses available on Skills, or explore the hundreds of paths built into the platform. Paths are curated groups of courses aligned to help you deepen your understanding of a skill, and each includes a skill assessment to get you started.

Still wondering where to start? Our Upgrading your technology career path is a great way to get going. Or try our Pluralsight learner: Getting started course for a video tour of the Skills platform.
