Within MC, I want to include a reference letter in line with this example evidence from technation:
“Outside of your normal day-to-day job role, you were a senior contributor to a large technology-led industry initiative, evidenced through reference letter(s) from global senior project executives.”
The reference letter is from the Chief Product Officer of a large, recognised blockchain company talking about my work in a large blockchain project initiative (it was actually a community project). This is outside of my day job as product manager and I did not receive any kind of compensation for it.
Is this acceptable to Technation as supporting evidence for mandatory criteria (exceptional talent)?
I’m confused because OC2 is specifically for this (proof of recognition for work beyond the applicant’s occupation that contributes to the advancement of the field) but this is the only work I have done outside of my day-to-day work.
This would be a really good piece of evidence. This is exactly the kind of stuff they are looking for, IMO. Do include the 1 pager giving context of how this work came about and any other relevant pieces of info to showcase impact.
