Global Perspectives Digital Badge
Global citizens get hired
As a part of our Signature Learning Experience, Centennial College students gain a competitive edge in the job market through engaging in global citizenship experiences. These experiences provide an opportunity for you to gain marketable skills and earn a digital badge you can highlight on your resumé, cover letter, LinkedIn profile, portfolio and in a job interview.
What is a digital badge?
A digital badge is a visual credential that verifies a particular achievement or the attainment of a specific skill or competency. With the increasing digitization of resumés and talent recruitment practices, digital badges enable a job seeker to show a potential employer a more holistic professional representation.
