Find & Grow Talent
When you look at a pile of resumes or sort through the annual avalanche of college applications, how do you know which potential employee or student will truly have what it takes to succeed? Standardized tests and other current forms of assessment do little to document creativity, persistence, interpersonal skills and other competencies that workers and students need to succeed in the real world. Meanwhile, many nontraditional students and workers -– such as military personnel transitioning to civilian life or Internet ninjas whose skills are prodigious but self-learned –- don’t have the certifications they need to get a foot in the door. Badges can bridge that gap.
