HOW TO GET A BIGGER JOB, PROMOTION, OR SALARY

You contributed to the success of an organization, profession, or industry. You are different, but do you look different — when you apply for, say, a leadership position? How do you sell yourself? How do you sell yourself in a performance review — for a promotion or raise? How do you write achievements or accomplishments?

The résumé keeps you stuck in the crowd: It can't differentiate you, it isn't trusted, it denies you a fair evaluation. Don't sweat trying to make your résumé great. Stop looking for résumé strategies. You also don't need to subscribe to a résumé builder or hire résumé writing services.

HOW TO GET A FAIR EVALUATION

CredPad is a complete and personal Digital Showcase that sets you up to win bigger rewards

CredPad enables fairness in employee evaluation during job application and performance review processes:

  • CredPad differentiates you as a contributor
  • Supercharges your credibility
  • Gives the most accurate sense possible of your true value.

CredPad completely eliminates distractions that are common in social media profiles — focusing employers on objectively evaluating you in the business context.

Such a focus on performance also ensures meritocracy. You will be evaluated regardless of age, race, gender, and such potential discriminators.

Armed with CredPad, be the one who starts a fair evaluation process. Do a couple of things — support your claims with evidences, most importantly.

Add evidences

Add evidences that support the answers you provide. Examples of evidences are customer emails, media reports, and a picture of a cup won. With CredPad, you will have all of your evidences in one place. Importantly, your evidences will be meaningfully mapped to specific contributions.

Bring a mentor to review

Bring an external person, who is recognized and has a public profile, as your mentor. Your mentor’s review of your contributions and optional recommendation would further supercharge your credibility.

Upgrade your résumé

All competing résumés make similar claims. So, just bring your résumé into CredPad and CredPad differentiates it — by adding a list of your contributions. Create and share a PDF with employers.

HOW TO GET IT FAST — WHEN YOU WANT IT

What does CredPad do for me? What does CredPad do for me

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're stuck in the crowd — because 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 bigger jobs, promotions, and salaries 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 a country), 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? Résumé fails. You need CredPad.

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. You need CredPad.

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 for 3 reasons: 1. Can't demonstrate contributions. 2. Isn't trusted — reason why organizations require prehire checks. 3. Doesn't enable fair evaluation.

I use my employer's Employee Performance software. Why do I need CredPad?

Employer owns and controls it, not you. Probably designed for the "market," not for you. Possibly designed for the organization, not for you. Employer schedules performance reviews — probably only once in a year. Information and access limited to current employer.
