Digital Badging – A Revolution in Skill Assessment
Finding The Right Candidates
In today’s ultra-competitive job market, it’s crucial that employers have every hi-tech tool at their disposal in order to find the best candidate for the job. The faster a business-owner can assess an applicant’s specialized skill set, the sooner their company will be able to grow and thrive.
According to a recent study by the leading professional jobs website; TheLadders using “eye tracking” technology, prospective employers only look at a job-seeker’s résumé for an average of six-seconds to assess their qualifications. Everyone knows that time is money; what if there was a system to ensure that hiring managers would be able to find the perfect candidate in a fraction of that time?
The Power of Digital Badging
That type of high-speed, high-accuracy vetting is exactly what Nocti Business Solutions offers with the digital badge – a revolutionary system that allows skills to be assessed virtually on first glance.
Our digital badging system not only has the potential to transform the education system, but it also allows your business to remain on the cutting-edge of technology.
It’s also surprisingly simple to use. Once a student or job-seeker receives a digital badge identifying their unique skill or certification, that badge can easily be stored in our Skill Badge Locker as well as Mozilla Backpack, ensuring that it’s never more than a mouse-click away.
Even better, there is no limit to the number of badges that can be earned or displayed, ensuring that every achievement will be displayed right on their digital résumé and Monster or Mozilla account. With several major financial supporters embracing the practicality of digital badges and schools in numerous states recognizing the value of this system, Nocti is giving hiring managers the power to recruit top-shelf talent consistently and effectively.
Early experiments with the digital badging system in the realm of career and technical education (CTE), have yielded exciting results. Imagine the traditional Boy Scout merit badge system updated and translated into the digital realm, and it’s easy to see what all the excitement is about. The digital badging system is something truly unique – a product that embodies the ideal union of tradition and technological innovation.
Not Just For Candidate Screening
But all of this only scratches the surface of our digital badging system’s true power. The system also gives employers the resources to conduct more efficient performance assessments, and partnership with our sister company NOCTI allows students to display their prowess through college recommendation badges for over 112 occupational certifications. The system is expanding as quickly as the technology that drives it, and with that kind of versatility, it’s no wonder that even prestigious schools such as Penn State are standing up to take notice of this innovative new system.
Meanwhile, there’s no limit to the number of trades and certifications that the digital badging system can support – a factor that makes it just as valuable to the job-seeker as to their potential employer.
Hiring Landscape Outlook
The future of technical skill assessment is now. In a time when the job market is more competitive than ever, employers must act swiftly if they hope to get a leg-up on the competition. The Nocti digital badging system allows them to do just that.
The tools to build a better business are finally within reach. All you need to do is reach out and grab them.
