U of A Partners with Blockchain Company for Innovative Resume-Building Program

The University of Arkansas recently collaborated with Arkansas-based blockchain company iDatafy to implement a new resume-building program for students.

The program, SmartResume, will directly verify and connect users’ resumes to the organizations, awards and education listed on the resume itself.

“If you think about it, colleges and universities have been issuing diplomas and transcripts for hundreds of years,” Walton college dean Matthew Waller said, “but they have never actually issued certified resumes to their students despite the colleges being in a position as a trusted authority to do so.”

SmartResume builds credible, certified resumes by collaborating with educators and employers, significantly reducing the vetting process. Each accredited institution features a SmartResume seal, certifying education, awards, employment, references, and more.

iDatafy founder and CEO Dave Wengel said his goal in developing SmartResume is simple.

“We want to build the world’s most trusted resume and certified career network,” Wengel said. “And do it from Arkansas.”
