What are Digital Badges?
Colleges and universities are working with employers to develop digital badges that highlight the skills students learn.
Digital badges allow you to showcase your achievements and the skills you’ve learned through related coursework. With a digital badge, you can…
- Highlight skills on your resume, job applications, social media, and more.
- Learn about competencies employers are looking for in your field.
- Identify open positions linked to the skills and competencies identified in the badges you have earned.
- Separate yourself from other candidates and applicants.
The best news - there is no additional cost to receive a general education badge! The digital badge is earned by completion of general education core courses, which are already built into associate in science, associate in arts and baccalaureate degree programs. Florida’s 12 state universities and 28 state colleges will automatically award the badge upon completion of the required coursework.
