Today recruiters are looking for professionals with skills needed to do the job, but along with the skills they also want to see the evidence for the same. Issuing students with digital certificates will allow them to get ahead: proving their skills and achievements in a way employers can trust.
The problem: Can experts prove their skills to employers?
For many parts of life, we need to prove who we are.
For example, here are three scenarios:
Scenario 1: Alex walks into Starbucks, wanting to order some coffee. He is short on cash and decides to use his Starbucks Loyalty Card to redeem the points.
Scenario 2: While waiting in the queue, Alex remembers that he has to transfer a document from his iPhone to his iMac. But the issue is that his devices are not synced and he needs to remember his username and password to connect them.
Scenario 3: He arrives at his workplace and realises that he has forgotten his ID card and now has to apply for a temporary visitor’s badge.
What connects these three situations? IDs!
Identification cards are requisites for just about everything we do. There are all sorts of identification we need to provide daily:
- Loyalty cards in stores
- Usernames and passwords
- Employee ID badges, passports, driving licences and more
But, when it comes to getting a job, most people are not able to prove, beyond doubt, that they have the skills they have worked so hard to learn and achieve.
