Digital credential provider Credly and Portfolium, an ePortfolio platform that makes a student’s academic and co-curricular experience searchable by employers, announced a new partnership that enables learners to demonstrate evidence of their learning and competencies to potential employers.
The new integration allows Portfolium users to access and display digital badges earned through Credly in their ePortfolio, and enables employers to search and find candidates based on badges that match specific job opportunities and targeted skillsets.
“There are more students graduating with degrees or certificates than ever before, and yet 60 percent of employers claim these students aren’t graduating with the skills they need to fill their jobs,” said Adam Markowitz, CEO of Portfolium. “Portfolium is solving this problem by allowing employers to match their jobs to the proven skills within students’ portfolios via our employer recruiting platform, TalentMatch.
