Online Credentials Service

We can provide you the ability to professionally manage your critical letters of recommendation. A big part of the job search is providing organizations with a set of reference letters - testimonials from people who can speak positively in support of your candidacy. Making it easy for reference writers to submit their letters, and for you to send your letters to hiring organizations, is an important aspect of your job search.  Our online reference system, located within "LakerLeads" is accessible 24/7, allows you to choose between confidential and non-confidential letters, lets you know when writers have submitted their letters (allows you to send them reminders), and more. Request your letters via email, standard or next day mail, or uploaded to an online job application system, and keep track of your mailing history at the click of a button. Set up and manage your account here.
