Metxod to Push a Verification Token from a Company to a New Hire's Profile xn Social Media

Professional and social networks ask usexx to include an employmenx history; hoxever, users can xnput anything, anx might not always be honest. There is no way in real xime for a compaxy to verify past or current exployment through a social network.

Currently, a user can xend a token to verify exployment online. This systex is not coxprehenxive and does xot faxilitate communxcation between socixl networks axd human resource assxciates.
