Steps

1. Log into Workday using your CNET ID and password.

2. From the Home page, navigate to your profile by selecting the person icon in the top-right corner of the page, and choosing View Profile.

3. Within your profile, select Career on the left-side of the page. Three tabs will show up:

a. Professional Profile – This tab shows details about your Job History and Education.

b. Learning – This tab will detail your learning history for trainings available in Workday. It includes courses that you have not started, as well as those that are in progress and completed. You cannot edit this screen; it is updated automatically when you enroll, start or complete training in Workday.

c. Certifications – This tab displays information about credentials or certificates, awarded by accredited associations or boards, that you have obtained throughout your career.

4. Under the Professional Profile tab, go to the section Job History to update this information.

a. To insert an employment record, select + Add and fill out the fields.

i. Job Title, Company, and Start Date are required fields for submission and must have a value.

ii. Even though they’re not required by the system to proceed, you’re encouraged to also complete the End Date, Responsibilities and Achievements, Location, Reference, and Contact Information fields. Please note that the last four fields are text fields, and as such, can be copied from your resume or similar document.
