Frequently Asked Questions
How is Candid Colleagues different to LinkedIn?
Candid Colleagues is a professional feedback management and career development application aimed at increasing self-awareness. Users will have the ability to exchange qualitative and quantitative feedback as each feedback submission will require a score and verbal feedback to be entered for the following three categories: Interpersonal Skills, Technical Skills, Industry Knowledge. These three feedback scores will equally contribute the an individual’s overall feedback score. This will allow the user to build a portfolio of referrals and recommendations which will help improve their self awareness and professional development while simultaneously appealing to recruiters, clients, investors, and their professional network.
What do I need to use Candid Colleagues?
All you require is an Android or iOS device (Android Smartphone, Android Tablet, iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch). Linking your Candid Colleagues account to your LinkedIn profile will simplify the registration process, but you are not obligated to do so.
Does Candid Colleagues protect my privacy?
Your privacy will always be our number one priority and you will only be visible on the app if you choose to download it and create an account. You can only exchange feedback with colleagues you have shared your private profile link with or who you have connected with on the app. You will have full control over which feedback is displayed on your profile and which isn’t. You can also choose to make your feedback public (visible to your connections) or private (visible just to you) and you are free to deactivate your account whenever you choose.
What are the key features Candid Colleagues offers?
Candid Colleagues allows you to log in using your LinkedIn account (or email address) and quickly creates a profile for you, mirroring your basic LinkedIn profile. Once set up, you are free to, publicly or anonymously, provide feedback to colleagues who you have connected with. You will be required to submit feedback (and an optional testimonial) on following three categories which will contribute to the overall feedback score for your colleague:
You can also request feedback from your colleagues (within the app or by sharing your private profile link with them), request for an anonymous colleague to reveal their identity, invite your fellow professionals to download the app, comment on & like your colleagues’ feedback, and see where you rank against your colleagues on the Leaderboard.
Note: Your privacy will always be protected. You will only be visible on the app if you choose to create an account. You can only exchange feedback with colleagues you have invited or connected with on the app. You will have full control over which feedback is displayed on your profile and which isn’t. You are free to deactivate your account anytime.
Why should I use Candid Colleagues?
Candid Colleagues provides you with the opportunity to exchange honest feedback with your colleagues and professional network, openly or anonymously. The feedback you gather will invaluably increase your self-awareness allowing you to leverage your strengths, develop your weaknesses, and ultimately fine tune your professional brand and reputation.
Rather than relying on the performance management calendar and system provided by your employer, you can gather a portfolio of professional feedback, on your terms, which will also help you attract the attention of recruiters, business partners, and investors.
