Change background information 

Edit the About Me area of your profile to let people know about your skills and previous work experience.

About this task

Use the About Me area of your profile to describe what you do. Provide details about the projects that you are working on, the technologies that you are using, and the problems that you are encountering or resolving. Include information about any relevant technical skills, language skills, or interests that you might have. Describe your previous work experience, education, and training.

Note: An administrator initially creates your profile with information from the user directory for your organization. Because the information comes from the organization's personnel directory and different directories store different information, the fields that are displayed in your profile might differ from the default fields. In addition, your administrator can automatically fill in a field to prevent you from having to fill it out. The administrator can also set a field to be read-only if it collects information that is not relevant to your organization.
