海投网(Haitou), one of China’s most widely used and recognised online recruitment platforms for job-seekers, has officially listed the ICDL certification on their website, and acknowledged it as a professional certification in China. Job-seekers who are going to fill in their CVs online can now choose “ICDL Certificate” as one of the professional certifications they possess.
Haitou’s management attended the ICDL press conference, organised in September 2017 in Nanjing. Understanding and recognising the value of ICDL certification, Haitou decided to add ICDL Certification as one of the professional certifications in the drop-down list on their website, with it being officially listed on 9 February 2018.
The listing will greatly increase the brand awareness of ICDL in China, not just for people who are looking for jobs, but also for corporates and potential employers. Other recruitment platforms in China may follow in the near future, so as to increase employability of job-seekers and to improve the recruitment efficiency for corporates.
