Socious: Work History as Verifiable Credentials

Problem

According to a survey, 55% of respondents admitted to lying on their resumes. Unfortunately, detecting fraudulent resumes is extremely difficult, and hiring a background check agency is expensive. 日本語

Solution

Build a Dapp to record work history as verifiable credentials and publish a Governance Framework, enabling hiring organizations to verify the authenticity of work history to hire qualified candidates.
