Digital Credentials are fast becoming the method of choice for educational institutions when it comes to managing your academic diplomas and certificates. Gone are those days where you simply get your degree, have it framed and hang it in your office. Digital Credentials create a visual representation of all your academic achievements across your lifetime and puts it all in one secure portal. This simplified accessibility can provide huge benefits to Learners, but it can also be of significant interest to institutions, businesses and potential employers as well.
The simplified process of having all your learning achievements in one place can greatly increase your ability to successfully apply for a position, whether it be for the sake of employment or even to undertake your next stage of learning. If I was to ask you, where do you have your study results stored right now, I’m sure many of you would struggle to answer or even be able to find them at all. You’d then likely have to endure the process of contacting the relevant institutions which you attended to obtain all the necessary transcripts. In the time this can take, the job of your dreams might have just passed you by. Having continuous secure access to your own credentials allows you the freedom to follow your own achievements and keep track of them for years to come.
Employers can also capitalise on this instant verification. Traditionally to verify a potential candidate’s transcripts they would require consent forms completed first, which they would have to send off to the relevant institutions to fulfill. Many of us probably know of someone who might have embellished a little on their resume to make themselves sound impressive. While most people know better than to lie when applying for a job, there is always the odd story where you hear of people just flat out making things up. The use of digital credentials completely alleviates this stress. Employers and recruiters can look someone up instantly and know if they are legitimately as impressive as they appear on paper.
These credentials function like a digital stamp showing completion of a course, an internship, a certificate, a transcript or even volunteer activities. Learners can choose to share this information with prospective institutions, employers or even on social media platforms. Employers and recruiters have increasingly begun to monitor social channels not only to review prospective employees, but also to discover them in the first place. Companies can also use this to help develop future talent by allowing them to network with candidates. This relationship can be of mutual gain for Learners as well, who can look to grow their professional network.
Some social platforms even allow you to share recognitions you achieve whilst you are employed as you further your skillsets. Employers may look on this non-degree credential favourably as they can easily keep track of who is improving within their business and showing potential.
There’s a good reason that millions of people across the world look to Digitary to manage and share their academic digital credentials. It’s quick, it’s secure, it’s easy and IT WORKS!
