ONE of the most common reasons employees face in the processing of employment in foreign countries or entities is the delivery of required verified documents to employers. Conversely, most common challenge of employers is ensuring the veracity of the academic documents they receive.
TrueProfile.io and Philippine Women’s University recently signed a memorandum of agreement that enables new graduates and alumni to secure lucrative opportunities overseas by a digital solution that ensures veracity in both acquisition and delivery of academic documents.
This makes PWU one of the first universities in the country to take advantage of this blockchain-based document verification service. It provides each new PWU graduate their own verified degree certificate which is important not only in applying for a job, but also for build trusting relationships and improved career opportunities with employers, regulators and authorities around the world.
“We are thrilled to provide TrueProfile.io’s verification service to all of our new graduates.
Not only will this assist our scholars in pursuing careers overseas, but it also reinforces the Philippine Women’s University’s reputation as a trusted educational institution which goes the extra mile to support our alumni in the professional world,” PWU Vice President for External Affairs Alfredo R. Reyes stated.
TrueProfile.io, powered by the DataFlow Group, has been a prominent tool for thousands of applicants who have successfully landed jobs abroad. PWU graduates will not only benefit from the verified degree certificate, but also from additional features on the platform such as the digital resume, career-focused content and resources as well as the ability to engage with leading employers for professional opportunities.
The online platform connects applicants and employers through a secure portal to upload and verify their documents and data, allowing them to keep their “TrueProofs” as a form of portable credentials. Business partners can then view potential employees’ credentials, saving valuable time in the hiring process. Blockchain grant all members secure access and full control over their documents—both online and offline.
“Assisting our members in gaining advantageous opportunities abroad, improving their career prospects and employability has always been at the heart of what we do at TrueProfile.io. Our new partnership with the Philippine Women’s University enables us to empower their promising graduates with a verified degree so they can pursue top tier roles while assuring potential employers of their qualifications. We look forward to helping PWU’s alumni build on their existing success as well as seeing the professional accolades of the class of 2020,” TrueProfile.io Chief Digital Officer René Seifert said.
PWU marks its centennial in academic year 2019-2020. It has autonomous status conferred by the Commission on Higher Education since 2008. The upgrade of its systems, including this partnership with TrueProfile is one of the projects the university is undertaking as part of its centennial celebration. — Raymond G.B. Tribdino
