DIGITAL PROFILES… WELCOME TO YOUR NEW CV
We’ve launched our new Digital Profiles, but what is it and how is it going to affect you as a candidate?
Do you wish you didn’t have to write another CV again? Do you get frustrated emailing your certificates in bulky attachments that drain your mobile data? Are you fed up with mountains of paperwork and wish you could just do it all online?
We have solutions to all these wishes… read on…
DIGITAL PROFILES – WHAT ARE THEY?
After decades in the industry, it’s safe to say that we have a comprehensive understanding of what companies want to know about prospective candidates. We also know seafarers and the huge amount of admin required to keep all your paperwork and CV up to date, it’s a chore isn’t it! Let’s not forget the dilemmas of the personal statement – should you include your love of reading, keeping fit and watching movies or that you like to travel round animal sanctuaries and cuddle tigers? If we’re completely honest… probably not.
Prospective employers want to know about the ‘Professional You’, the you that diagnosed a recurring technical issue with the main engine, the you that performed grade changes from ammonia to light products, the you that has worked hard to get your qualifications, the you that looked after a thousand passengers! Your voyages, your stories and your challenges are what made you a great addition to any team. This information about the ‘Professional You’ is what will likely swing the decision on whether you make the interview shortlist. Our system has been carefully designed to include a DESCRIPTION box in your sea service entry, so you can show off all these things that make you unique and package it up in an easy to read format for prospective employers.
For employers their inboxes can breathe a sigh of relief, our system sees an end to bulky attachments and vast quantities of CV’s in various formats. The digital profiles are shared via a secure URL link, so they can view all your personal information online in a standardised format. These links are only accessible for a set period ensuring that your personal details remain secure and we are GDPR compliant.
WHY HAVE YOU CREATED DIGITAL PROFILES?
Our industry is reliant on outdated processes for certification and is struggling under mountains of paperwork. We want the industry to embrace digital systems that will streamline processes, reduce paper waste and develop digital certification recognised globally from all awarding bodies. Digital certificates are on the horizon and we want to be prepared.
We’re ready to be the digital disrupters and help push our Industry into the future!
