The current recruitment process is filled with a lot of problems that limit employers from getting the best candidates for their job and job seekers from getting the job they deserve. As unemployment rate continue to rise and job seekers competitite for the few available openings, certificate forgery and falsehood in resumes has become the order of the day. Although they are some platforms that has tried to solve some of these problems but invariably due to their centralised nature they haven't been successful. Some of them have only managed to enrich themselves with no monetary incentives for the users who make up these platforms.

Past employers will attest for a user’s work experience if the user truly worked with them, once this has been verified it will be written to the blockchain. While education qualification and work experience are important for scoring an interview, it has been established that recruiters actually place a higher value on skills. Skills attestation is harder to attest for in the sense that the proficiency of an individual in a particular skillset cannot be objectively proven either by exam or correctly by past employers since an individual most times display only the particular skill needed at work. This leaves skillsets for users who have had past experiences with the individuals to attest for them. The skill attestation will come from users who are in the individuals network. All these will come at a small cost, this will make sure that the platform is safe and secure from those who would want to manipulate it by creating multiple profiles to attest on their behalf.
