1. Login to Your ZipRecruiter Account.

If you already have a job seeker profile with ZipRecruiter simply click on this link and sign in at the top of the page. You’ll be directed to your profile and provided with directions as to how to sync your CompTIA digital badges – and you’re all set!

2. Create a ZipRecruiter Account.

If you don’t have an existing job seeker profile, start by setting one up. You’ll be asked what type of job you’re looking for and where you’d like to work. Then you’ll view some sample jobs, and you can decide if they are good matches for the work you’d like to do. Next, you’ll be prompted to upload your resume.

3. Import Your Certification(s).

When your newly created profile is complete, you’ll import your certification by selecting Credly to upload your CompTIA digital badge. You’ll have to sign in to Credly and grant permission to share your credentials with ZipRecruiter. Once signed in, simply select which digital badge you want to share and complete the import.

Once you complete these steps your CompTIA credentials will be used to match you to jobs. It is really that easy.

The Perks of Using ZipRecruiter

Looking for a new job can be a full-time job in and of itself. When you sync your CompTIA digital badge to your ZipRecruiter profile, you’ll increase your job prospects by enhancing your career profile, highlighting your skills in autofill job applications, getting matched with recommended jobs and getting invited to apply for jobs that fit your skillset.

ZipRecruiter is built to be more than a job search engine – it’s a service that keeps you informed on the latest job openings, while also putting your resume to work for you. ZipRecruiter’s “1-click apply” capability means they fill out the application for you using the information in your career profile – showcasing your CompTIA certifications to employers as part of that application. 

By making your profile public to employers, ZipRecruiter can also help you get recruited, by empowering employers to invite you to apply to their positions. Saving your time, narrowing your focus and putting you on the right path to success is what it’s all about.
