Unlock the Potential of the Degree with Digital Credentials

Against a backdrop of rising degree skepticism, a growing number of employers are turning to digital credentials to better understand the skills and competencies of job seekers. And a growing number of colleges are awarding digital credentials that provide verifiable evidence of skills and competencies that have been learned in college, even in the absence of a degree. Breaking the degree down with digital credentials could unlock potential for the millions of Americans with some college but no degree, and could reinvigorate employer confidence in the role that colleges play in developing workforce-vital skills and competences.

In a post published on Insights and Outlooks, Credly's CEO Jonathan Finkelstein shares his take on how digital credentials can unlock the potential of the college degree.
