Everything you need to know so you can use Adaptiv like a pro

Question mark

What is Adaptiv?

Adaptiv is a full-stack career intelligence platform that helps young professionals convert their CV into a unique Profile NFT that showcases their skills, and enables them to achieve their professional goals.

What is the future of work?

๐Ÿง‘โ€๐Ÿ’ผ Rapid advances in technology, the global economy, shifting political realities, and changing demographics will influence the future of work.
๐Ÿ”ฎ Experts believe that the future of work will be increasingly automated, and specialised. The green economy and creator economy are expected to grow, and telecommuting and other forms of remote work are likely to become more common.

What is the Adaptiv Graph?

The Adaptiv Graph is a vast and intricate knowledge graph that we have built by constantly crawling thousands of job portals and sites to analyse and understand emerging trends in the job market. It will help you make the right career decisions by showing you the jobs and skills that will be in demand in the new economy.

What are the six pillars?

The Adaptiv framework consists of six pillars needed to succeed in the future of work:
๐Ÿš€ Web3 & New Technology
๐Ÿš€ Marketing & Content Creation
๐Ÿš€ Product Development ๐Ÿš€ Finance and Crypto
๐Ÿš€ Sustainability & Ecology
๐Ÿš€ People & Culture

Why don't the six pillars include my field?

The Adaptiv framework is based on more generalised career paths, where upskilling and switching career paths doesn't rewuire highly specialised formal education. Unfortunately that excludes some career paths like medicine, engineering, software development etc.

Nevertheless, we believe that knowing and understanding the changes in the job market will be beneficial for everyone. The Adaptiv app offers insights into everything from changing workplace norms, like Diversity and Inclusion, to more specific skills and jobs in the new economy.

Why should I get the Adaptiv app?

We've been told that the information in Adaptiv is easily available with a simple Google search.

Sure, it is. But when was the last time you did a Google search on the trending jobs and skills?

We live in a world of constant flux, due to socio-political upheavals leading to fluctuations in the economy, global health and climate crises. It is important to track changes in the future of work, so you can be armed with the right information and take the data-driven decisions for your career.

The Adaptiv Knowledge Graph is constantly crawling the web to track changes in job requirements, and our team updates the app with the latest intel on emerging career paths, and important skills to acquire for a future-proof career.

How can Adaptiv help me achieve my career goals?

Our mission is to provide the most relevant career intelligence to students and professionals so they can take data-driven decisions regarding their career, and acquire the most important skills needed in the future of work.

The bite-sized content available on the Adaptiv app helps you get the right amount of information needed to work towards your career goals. Unlike traditional courses and MOOCs, Adaptiv doesn't require much investment in time. So you can learn on the go, and always stay relevant & ready for success.

Why is it important to know about all fields?

๐Ÿ”ฎ As technology continues to evolve and change the landscape of the workforce, it is becoming increasingly important for everybody to be able to adapt to new situations and learn new skills quickly.
๐Ÿ”ฎ The future of work will require individuals to have a more diverse skill set in order to be successful. Organisations are more interested in candidates who are multi-skilled, and aware of what's changing across different industries.

How is the learning journey made?

Your personalised learning journey is compiled by our team of learning experts, aided by our faithful AI, Ada. We take into account your mission, as well as your areas of interest to create a unique learning journey that will help you achieve your career goals.

What are durable skills?

HR professionals and industry experts talk soft and hard skills. But the terms โ€œsoftโ€ and โ€œhardโ€ are very misleading. There is nothing โ€œsoftโ€ or easy about critical thinking, leadership, time management, or even communication.

Experts are now talking about skills in light of their relevance and life cycle - a skill learned 10 years ago is now obsolete, and half of what you learned 5 years ago is also irrelevant. This has led to the use of the new, more relevant terms of durable, and perishable skills.

Durable skills are tangible, teachable skills that have a longer shelf-life, and enable you to acquire the more perishable, or technical skills.

What is Web3?

A term that was coined by Gavin Wood, the co-founder of Ethereum, Web3 gained popularity in 2021 among crypto enthusiasts and venture capital firms. It is the latest iteration of the World Wide Web, based on Blockchain technology and incorporates the concepts of digital ownership and peer-to-peer networks.

What is an NFT?

๐Ÿ’Ž A Non-Fungible Token (NFT) is a record on a cryptocurrencyโ€™s blockchain (an immutable ledger that can record more than just virtual coins) that represents pieces of digital media.
๐Ÿ’Ž So far, NFT's have provided an answer to the issue of ownership in digital art, videos and text, but they have other applications, especially in the future of work.

What is a Profile NFT?

An NFT is a digital file that is registered in a blockchain and holds unique information about an object, and its ownership. An NFT links to a particular piece of digital art, music, video, etc. and that can be bought and sold. NFTs became popular in the world of digital art, and have enabled artists to monetise their digital art and become millionaires overnight.
A Profile NFT, or a non-fungible token of your CV will contain the following information:
๐Ÿš€ Your technical (perishable) skills
๐Ÿš€Your soft (durable) skills
๐Ÿš€ Your experience
๐Ÿš€ Your qualifications

Why should I get a Profile NFT?

A profile NFT has several advantages over a traditional CV or LinkedIn profile:
๐Ÿš€ It is sophisticated and part of the new economy powered by AI, crypto and the blockchain.
๐Ÿš€ It is a validated proof of your skills that increases trust in your professional profile.
๐Ÿš€ It is a unique economic opportunity that enables people to back your profile and invest in your future.

How is this better than LinkedIn?

๐Ÿ“ LinkedIn is great to create your brand, find jobs, and build a network in Web 2.0. But it doesn't guarantee trust during the recruitment process. HR professionals are wary of CVs and LinkedIn profiles with a long list of skills, and experience.
๐Ÿ“ A Profile NFT acts as a proof of work and merit, by publishing only verified skills, and storing the records on the Blockchain. Without any fear of fraud, recruiters will have greater trust in a Profile NFT than a traditional CV, or a LinkedIn profile.

How can I validate my skills?

๐Ÿ‘ You can validate your skills and unlock NFT value by solving challenges stored on the Adaptiv Knowledge Graph. These challenges are in the form of gamified quizzes that enable you to earn Quarks, which can be used to unlock other features and advantages.

Why should I validate my skills when I have a Masters degree?

๐Ÿค” Without validation, the skills claimed by a person - either through their LinkedIn profile, CV or otherwise are not verifiable. Any NFT value that is assigned to a profile NFT is only indicative and can only be ascertained once the validation happens.

How will Blockchain help increase trust in my skills?

Blockchain is a digitally distributed, decentralized, public ledger that exists across a network, and guarantees immutability, transparency and efficiency.

The recent State of Talent Acquisition report highlights how Blockchain technologies will change recruitment in future of work:
๐Ÿš€ A profile stored on Blockchain will ensure transparency and eliminate information mismanagement by all concerned parties, and remove the fer of fraudulent applications.
๐Ÿš€ As an immutable proof of work and merit, a profile on the Blockchain will be accepted as a trusted source of truth.

How is the value of my Profile NFT calculated?

๐Ÿ“Š The value of your Profile NFT is based on the current market value of your skills and experience, based on the emerging trends observed in the Adaptiv Graph.

What are Quarks?

๐Ÿ’Ž Quarks are the currency of the Adaptiv platform with the following value:

10000 Quarks = 1 Wei
1 Eth = 1\*10-18 Wei

How can I mint my Profile NFT?

๐Ÿ”ฅ Once you have validated your skills, you can connect your Metamask wallet, and we will air drop your Profile NFT into it.

๐Ÿ”ฅ You can continue to increase the value of the NFT by taking a series of challenges or courses on the Adaptiv app. The profile NFT will be visible on the Adaptiv platform as well as any other NFT platform that supports ERC 721 based on your choice.
