The Web3 resume and the future of work
You got fired.
After 8 years of dedicated work as a Graphic Designer, you received out of nowhere this terrible news.
And your life which seemed very stable and safe is about to change a lot.
You need to update your resume, check your finances, tell your family and friends about your new status, and, of course, start looking for new jobs.
But, as you can imagine, you are going to come across some challenges.
First, the resume. How could you express years of work, challenges overcome, skills learned, team management, designs you’ve created, and all your achievements in just a two-page curriculum?
You may even have a portfolio with some of the pieces you’ve created for the company, but what about the results generated by them? How do you prove the increase in sales and the revenue generated by your new product pack design idea or new website?
It’s just your word in front of the company interviewer. It’s not fair, right?
A lot of your professional history lives only in the company database which you have no access to at all.
This lack of digital ownership has a direct impact on everyone's professional progress. This missing reliable historic data about our performance at work or even at school/college reduces drastically the leverage of professionals over companies.
That’s why on-chain credentials are one of the most promising use cases of Web3.
Forget about certifications and resumes. What we are talking about here is on-chain proof-of-achievement for your most important jobs, skills, and educational challenges.
How many times has your artwork nft been sold or embedded on a website?
What educational challenges did you successfully complete in the last year?
What are your digital skills?
Have you ever set up this particular application?
What is your score on helping forums from your industry?
These and a bunch of other information will be right on your digital professional wallet. And they will be pseudonymously public, making the headhunter process of searching for professionals a lot easier.
Imagine being able to filter just those job candidates who have surpassed a certain score proficiency level in a second language instead of just believing the CV.
Web3 is a tectonic shift in everyone's life, whether you are an entrepreneur, an employee, or an executive.
Digital ownership is unlocking new ways of working, learning, and living.
NFTs emerged as digital ownership.
DAOs emerged as collective digital ownership.
No matter the fancy work you call these technologies, they are impact your life profundly.
