Career Content Portal MyCredentials Launches
Laguna Niguel, Calif. — Sept. 18
With news that hourly earnings rose only 6 cents quarter, the timing is ideal for the announcement of a new career content portal, www.MyCreds.net.
It offers users a highly personalized and highly advanced resource for showcasing all of a user’s important career content in one place.
MyCredentials offers users the tools to build their own career portfolio on the Web. Job seekers create a dedicated Web site where they can post videos (such as a video introduction, video referrals from past employers, etc.), update and post their most recent skills and education and manage their job-seeking efforts — all of which makes sending a plain resume seem dated and obsolete.
As a long-time owner of a recruiting business for the software industry, MyCredentials creator Jeff Calannio knew there was a need for career seekers to present a more detailed snapshot of themselves, something that would allow prospective employers to truly get a feel for the candidate and their specific skills and experience.
In this modern era, the days of a limited one-page resume are gone.
“People invest in their education but don’t often think of investing in marketing their career successes in order to promote their market value,” Calannio said. “MyCredentials was developed because I could see firsthand that recruits needed to proactively push, manage and create content that is relevant to today’s current employment landscape.
“There are over 130 million employed people in the U.S. and roughly 25 percent of them are looking for jobs, while we estimate another 25 percent of those currently employed are open to finding a new job. Why wouldn’t you do something to set yourself apart from those numbers?”
