Any User can create a set of personal skills offered. The skills offered post follows a template and usually includes things like Skills I Bring to a Team, and Other Start-up Experience. The user will post this where it is visible to all under the Skills Offered link in the page footer.
Normally, User profiles are not visible to other users. This feature is used to permit any user to post a targeted subset of their skills. (Visible profiles are enabled only for those individuals offering to share their expertise as, for example, Mentors or Subject Matter Experts.)
Team Leaders (See Teams) review posted skills as part of their effort to build a team. They can directly message users who post skills to followup on the recruitment process. The user is able to hide their posting when they no longer what to be contacted.
