Paddl is excited to announce the release of the newest pack of Activity Cards: Employment Activity Cards!

We’re excited to officially announce the newest pack of Paddl Activity Cards - the Employment Category! These cards will allow you to add previous work experiences to your profile - with the ability to choose from over 50,000 skills to add to each activity, clearly highlighting how you grew from each experience. The current cards available in this pack are the Internship, Casual, Part time and Full time card categories, with more on the way soon!

At Paddl, we understand everyone’s journey is unique, and everyone’s experiences are different. It’s these experiences that make you stand out, and we’re working hard to make sure each can be easily documented and shared with future employers. That’s why we created the Padd Experience Profile, and Paddl Activity Cards.

Create a simple profile summary of your skills by collecting and storing your relevant experiences in the form of Activity Cards (much like football cards) - where you summarise the real world activities you’ve participated in, to demonstrate the professional experience and skills you’ve gained. Through a Paddl Experience Profile and Activity Cards, you can easily showcase what experiences make you, well, you!

Easily Categorise Your Activities

In order to add an Activity Card to your Paddl Profile, you’ll first be prompted to choose a Category.

You can now add Activity Cards for your Casual, Internship, Part time and Full time employment experience, with more Activity Cards for other forms of employment coming soon!

If you haven’t already, add your Education and Competition Activity Cards. The Education Category currently includes Activity Cards for High School, Course, Certificate, Diploma, Bachelor Degree and Master Degree activities. The Competition Category currently includes Activity Cards for Paddl Games Challenges.

Once you’ve selected a category, you’ll be prompted to select an activity from a dropdown box. You’ll then be prompted to complete the Details, Skills and Progress Sections.

Showcase Your Experience

Each activity card has 3 Sections in which to capture information - the Details of the activity (such as the role you held, where and the level of commitment), the Skills you gained (remember there’s 50,000 to choose from!) and the Progress you’ve made. The Progress section contains a progress bar if your activity is current - this is a visual indicator of the time remaining until you complete an activity (in this case, there’s a giant tick because it’s all done!) This is a great way to track your progress and identify which skills you’re actively developing.

You can find out more about the specifics of completing each Section here, but remember - you need to complete each Section to submit and save your Activity Card to build your Paddl Experience Profile.

Track Your Professional Journey

Once you’ve added some Activity Cards, you can view them in your Explorer Profile Experience Tab,  listed in their order of completion (or estimated completion). This timeline can be seen by employers viewing your profile once you apply for an opportunity, so make sure you’re always updating your profile with your latest achievements and activities!

Vote for your next Cards

Experience is at the centre of our world at Paddl, and we’re here to help you build and record it. We’re working hard to make sure that every experience you have and skills you’ve acquired from them, can be showcased to future employers through a relevant Activity Card. You can find out about our earlier releases here.

We want to know what features or ‘activities’ you would most like to see represented, so why not help us out by voting below on what activities you want to see represented?
