Compliments on Youth4work Profile

When somebody commends you and others are able to see it too, that’s the best laurel you get. These commendations bring about an edge of subjective evaluation of your profile by employers or recruiters. 
What is a Compliment?
A compliment is a note of representation qualifying certain characteristics in favor of someone or something. In Youth4work’s context, a compliment is a note written by any youth or employer recognizing your talents on your public profile. When anyone visits your public profile, often they would like to see if anyone else has spoken about your talents. Mostly, compliments come automatically and they have a good impact on your profile.
In compliment, the person can write about how the other person has used or uses that particular talent in current and past working, quoting examples, problems and solutions given, results produced, etc.
A compliment is different from a Social Vouch, which is sharing a youth’s talent on social networks.
 Whom to ask for a compliment?

  • It is important to list whom you want to get compliments from. Normally, people who value your talent, work and or services, such as managers, colleagues, co-workers, customers, and clients can compliment you well. To have people from your working group on Youth4work is beneficial that ways. Ask your friends and colleagues to create their profile today.
  • Also, you may contact youth from your talent communities and discussion forums, with whom you interact on various topics. How to contact them? Send direct WorkMail to them through the ‘Send Mail’ option on their profile page. You may customize the message in the mail with specifics on which of the talents you want them to compliment. Ask them to mention how they see you using your talent at studies in college, at work while dealing with problems, driving results, etc.
  • It is great to have a range of compliments for one talent, but too many compliments may project your profile as too much showy.
  • Moreover, also complimenting others first for their talents in the manner explained above increases your chances to receive compliments in return 🙂
