When you create your account you can get your information from LinkedIn. We will then copy your name, profile photo, headline/bio and your e-mail address. Very convenient, isn’t it?
It also serves another purpose. For your referee it is important to know that you are who you say you are. By connecting to LinkedIn, your referee can view your profile and check your identity.
We are working hard at the integration of other social networks and other ways of checking your identity. When you sign up for our newsletter, we will keep you informed of new developments and features.
