Why is Merit important for Caz students?

Digital badges are a great way to show off your skills, achievements and academic success. Not only is it fun to earn badges and let them do the bragging for you on your social media pages, it is also a way to show off skills and involvement. Badges have become a popular way for employers to learn more about you beyond your resume. Since Merit badges awarded by the College receive a "Verified by Cazenovia College" stamp, they are backed with an institutional credibility neither your LinkedIn profile nor resume have.

You can make your Merit page shine by adding a professional photo of yourself, photos of your achievements, and outline your work and internship experience.
