The public sector can be hard to translate to others if they’re not in the industry themselves. [A visual portfolio] can help them show what they’ve developed, what they’re working on, and ultimately share their complete professional story with others.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 14, 2012
WorkSimple (http://getworksimple.com/), the social performance platform that helps individuals, teams, and large organizations share social goal, receive feedback, set focuses, and increase results, is altering the way public sector professionals take charge of their careers through its new Personal Edition. The Personal Edition is as easy to use as an employee's favorite social network and allows workers to showcase their accomplishments and advance their careers.
Previously, showcasing achievements with a personal portfolio was limited to artists or designers with platforms like Behance or Carbonmade. Now, any working professional, including public sector professionals, can manage their career with WorkSimple’s Personal Edition with its a visual storyboard of endorsements, accomplishments, and more.
“Just like other industries, the public sector can be hard to translate to others if they’re not in the industry themselves,” said Morgan Norman, co-founder and CEO of WorkSimple. “This is why having a visual portfolio that goes beyond a standard resume can be so beneficial for public sector professionals. It can help them show what they’ve developed, what they’re working on, and ultimately share their complete professional story with others.”
Here’s how the Personal Edition works: Leslie, a Public Policy Coordinator at Cook County Bureau, signs up for an individual account. Through WorkSimple’s Personal Edition, she can create goals or milestones she wants to achieve this month. The Director, as well as her co-workers and managers, can give her real-time feedback, endorsements, and even “likes” regarding her progress. Leslie can also keep track of all her goals -- as well as show off her public sector accomplishments -- through reports, which can be generated whenever she wants.
Additionally, with the Personal Edition's analytics feature, public sector workers can see who’s checking out their work and who’s giving them feedback. They are also able to showcase their accomplishments externally through Twitter and LinkedIn. This can be particularly helpful if Leslie decides to leave the Cook County Bureau to look for opportunities in the public sector elsewhere. The combination of all of these features can help professionals like Leslie to build their professional brand in the public sector industry and shape her as a solid practitioner.
“Many workers in the public sector find it challenging to showcase what they’ve done and how they got there -- in addition to highlighting the results they produced, whether it’s coordinating outreach efforts, developing new policies, providing logistical support, or supporting government programs,” said Ben Moore, co-founder and CTO of WorkSimple. “WorkSimple’s Personal Edition allows anyone in the public policy space to translate these achievements to a visual portfolio of goals, feedback, endorsements, and accomplishments, helping them get the recognition they deserve. This is something traditional portfolio platforms just don’t do.”
