FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


My résumé got me my current job. Why call it "failing"?

The résumé merely captures standard lists of data such as degrees and job titles. It can't differentiate achievers like you. It isn't even trusted. So it doesn't enable a fair evaluation — in performance reviews and in job applications. Which means you can't get differentiated rewards.

Résumé fails, keeps you stuck
What is a digital showcase? CredPad digital showcase

A digital showcase, generally, is an online platform to show off research, products, anything. CredPad is an online platform to show off your career contributions. Unlike the obsolete paper or PDF résumé, CredPad brings you into the digital revolution. CredPad has everything you need to differentiate and sell yourself to employers.

What does CredPad do for me? CredPad features and benefits

You are an achiever who contributed to the success of an organization, profession, or industry. You want to win bigger rewards at performance reviews and when you apply for jobs. Unfortunately, you rely on a résumé that can't differentiate you.

CredPad differentiates you by demonstrating your contributions in a business-savvy way. CredPad sets you up to get a bigger job, promotion, and salary by providing these: (1) Demonstration of your contributions (2) Evidences that back up your claims (3) Your mentor's review and optional recommendation (4) Upgraded résumé and (5) Content that enables remote pitching.

I have several achievements. What do you mean by a contribution? What is a contribution

An achievement has a personal ring to it and may or may not have had a significant impact on others. However, if one or more achievements played a significant and demonstrable role in the success of an organization (or any other entity such as an industry), then it is a contribution. For example, publishing a book is an achievement, but if there's evidence that the book improved customer acquisition significantly, then it is a contribution. In this case, your performance deserves bigger rewards. Read also "Is CredPad right for me?"

Showing evidences is a good idea, but what if my evidences are confidential? CredPad is private, but share evidences with caution

CredPad is private, but keep in mind that when you share your CredPad link with a person, you do not know who they will share it with. You should never upload any confidential content as evidence. Content such as CEO emails and customer emails may or may not be confidential — you should first check. In some cases, you can check with the person who made a quote that you'd like to show and they may tell you to simply remove or mask names. Besides a few exceptions, there are probably many other evidences you can still provide, such as a media report, a PDF of your article, or a picture of a cup you won. To see evidences that one person provided in his CredPad Showcase, please email contact@credpad.com.

I have a pretty good résumé. Why do I need CredPad? Résumé fails because it keeps you undifferentiated and stuck in the crowd

Relying on a résumé really is what keeps you stuck. Even with a long list of achievements and a nice design, a résumé still fails: 1. Can't differentiate you because it can't demonstrate contributions. 2. Isn't trusted — reason why organizations require prehire checks. 3. Doesn't enable fair evaluation.
