How does the block chain affect recruitment?


nnnRampage comment: no matter which industry which areas of recruitment, the biggest uncertainty is the qualifications of the candidate’s qualifications, the process of time and cost is also great. So in reality, most employers choose not to audit the certificate and resume. However, if all the information is stored in the chain chain wallet, the candidate can authorize the information to access. You can avoid the complicated process, to achieve more accurate check results.n
nnTranslation: Annie_Xun
nThe block chain of the words are encrypted currency ups and downs. How the block chain will affect the recruitment process does not become the main topic of Twitter. But its impact may be profound.n
nOne of them is still chaotic background investigation. Many small companies rely on a few phone calls or emails with the nominees of the candidates. Its limitations are obvious. Large companies sometimes conduct more background checks directly or through third parties.n
nConfirming the credibility of the candidate’s background requires access to a number of different sources of information. Including the position and time of the inaugural company, what qualifications to obtain, what professional certificate, work permit status, the police good proof of behavior, wait.n
nDishonest candidates may provide any of the above false information, the employment of qualified medical practitioners may have a negative impact on the recruiters, not to mention the bad luck of the patient. Employing employees who do not have a work permit may make the recruiter violate the law, be punished or even imprisoned.n
nFound that dishonesty is not a panacea, but the block chain provides a guarantee of background checks. Here are some possibilities:n
nAlmost every university recaptures audit qualifications. This process is usually the case: the candidate signed the power of attorney, so that the company to verify their qualifications. The company schedules the power of attorney to the school. A person in the university examines academic performance, confirms or negates the statement of the candidate. Most universities do not charge, and some third-party service providers charge a single verification fee of about $ 10 to $ 20.n
nThe university can issue an encrypted degree certificate on the chain. Candidates can access the certificate through a wallet. When a company requests a visit, the candidate can authorize the company directly. This can greatly improve the process speed, greatly reducing the university’s management costs.n
nIf the candidate’s wallet saves this information, it is not a waste to store other certificates and qualifications. For example, why do not I get a work permit (H1B, Blue Cards, Critical Skills Permits)?n
nNo matter what license is currently issued by the government department, it can be published in the same block chain. So that the company immediately and clearly verify the certificate, greatly reduce the fraud of the illegal infringement possible to speed up the background investigation. The good conduct of the police can also do so, so the same professional certificate is the same.n
nThe more complex use case is the candidate’s time and place of employment. Now anyone can just say where to work, and did not immediately review the resume or LinkedIn measures. Technically, companies can provide encrypted information in the same purse, reminding candidates for their inauguration and post. Candidates can provide information to potential workers. Candidates may choose to disclose this information, and most global professionals have already done so in LinkedIn. Use the block chain to allow the original employer to verify the information. You can also save time for the HR department.n
nThe infrastructure is currently being built to support this service. For example, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT Media Lab) project Blockcerts.org will provide open source tools for registering digital records on the chain.n
nOf course there are reasonable concerns, especially privacy. The information is intrinsically private and is subject to strict regulation in many countries, but as long as the individual permits, or can safely publish information in the chain chain, so that individuals only with their authorized object to share information.n
nThere are two major obstacles. First, let the university, government departments and issuing agencies believe that as long as the deployment properly, this is a good thing. Second, someone needs to create, publish and support a digital wallet that stores information.n
nLinkedIn and other well-known institutions or new start-up companies to meet this challenge or opportunity, it is eagerly looking forward to.n
