Digital badges are virtual emblems that recognize, legitimize and professionalize your aptitude testing achievement with the Johnson O’Connor Research Foundation. Your badge is uniquely linked to you.

You can share your digital badge to popular online social media and professional platforms, like LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. It can also be embedded in a résumé, your personal website, or your email signature. Anyone who views your badge can select it to learn more about the aptitude testing you completed and its value.

After you’ve finished your aptitude testing, you’ll be issued a badge through our partner, the digital badging organization BadgeCert.

Digital badges provide recognition that you completed our aptitude testing program and provide a way to share and discuss that achievement with others.

Digital badges can be shared on LinkedIn or in résumés, personal websites or digital portfolios, allowing you to communicate your aptitude testing experience to employers and to network with other alumni of the Johnson O’Connor Research Foundation.

Digital badges can be shared in college applications, résumés, personal websites or digital portfolios, providing that extra edge for students applying for colleges, scholarships, internships, or other programs.
