Add Digital Credentials to your CV to stand out
Every student is career-oriented and invests in a program that will help them get a job. The learner may want the delivered certificate to be shareable and verifiable in this case. When a student enrolls in a learning program, certification takes priority, making it critical for the company to value and validate credentials.
The learner can display and demonstrate their skills with the help of digital badges, which are recognized by the training institution or an organization. Learners can show off their badges on social media and networking sites, which raises brand recognition and increases engagement, interest, and collaboration. Digital badges can be earned for moving through the course, as distinct to digital certificates, that are awarded after completion of the entire course.
However, how do you make these digital certificates stand out to potential employers?
Adding Digital Credentials to LinkedIn:
When LinkedIn users add a digital certificate or digital badge to their profile, they can connect with professionals in the field, colleagues at work, and new acquaintances to build networks of people with similar abilities, positions, professional experience, and interests. LinkedIn is a wonderful platform for adding digital certificates and badges, employment history, job skills, accolades, publications, and, most importantly, presenting certifications and badges to their portfolios and resumes.
Assists the recruiter in verifying:
Because of the growing number of cybercriminal operations involving the duplication of credentials to qualify for a job, recruiters and hiring managers are finding it difficult to distinguish between counterfeit credentials. Recruiters can easily identify and qualify the suitable candidate for the relevant employment post since Digital Certificates and Digital badges can both be confirmed by recruiters in a few clicks and are backed by powerful meta-data that stores the credential activity.
Aids in the recognition of your skill sets:
Because the CV is frequently the only documentation that aids recruiters in identifying the best candidate, candidates sometimes find it difficult to explain what they can truly achieve for a firm and pique the recruiter’s attention through the CV. Including relevant digital credentials to the CV assists, recruiters notice your skill sets because they represent your proficiency in the job title and are authenticated.
Adding skills to your CV or Resume:
Users have two options for adding and sharing their Digital Credentials: through media posts or by integrating them into their profile.
When a user obtains Digital Credentials, they’re taken to a page where they may publish their accomplishments across all digital channels, including LinkedIn.
On LinkedIn’s news feed, Click Post. Add a caption or a message. It should be remembered that uploading will enable the Digital Credential’s media (in the form of images or videos) to be posted on the LinkedIn newsfeed. LinkedIn chat can also be used to share these credentials.
Users can, on the other hand, add their skills and certificates through a feature available on the LinkedIn Users profile, which may be visible to potential recruiters when they visit your profile.
Putting up the skills and Certification on your CV:
One can directly mention their digital certifications on their certificates through embedding the URLs of the certification or badge, attaching the media of digital credentials to the CV, or by sharing a digital credential wallet that stores all your stacked credentials.
This will drive recruiters to your Credentials provider, allowing them to validate the digital certificate and badge as well as check for applicable competency for the role.
