There are still a few minor kinks in the process that are being ironed out
When I joined Degreed, this is the product that convinced me to work for them. I got a sneak peek of some of the early designs back in January and saw the value immediately. As someone who dropped out of college, and studied something unrelated to my now-career, it's been difficult throughout my career to show my expertise -- especially early in my career when my 'work experience' was all freelance or work-study jobs! Had Degreed Skill Certification been around back then, I know it would've helped get my foot in the door for some opportunities. I'm excited to get my certifications in UX Design, User Research and maybe even Photography!Jess Huang has used this product for one month.

It takes a few hours of thoughtful work to complete the process.
