Providing and receiving feedback after project completion.

Updated over a week ago

After project completion, learners will be able to provide and receive feedback from the companies they collaborated with. The feedback a learner receives will appear on the learner’s Riipen profile.

Your Riipen profile is your virtual portfolio where prospective employers can view the projects you have complete, feedback you have received, and any skills or endorsements provided by employers.

Key benefits of providing and receiving feedback:

  • Showcase project experience on your Riipen and LinkedIn profiles.

  • Increase appeal to future employers by demonstrating experience in specific project categories.

You can always add the projects that you worked on and feedback you have received to your LinkedIn profile or directly to your resume / CV.



At the end of a project, learners submit a final deliverable to the employer. Subsequently, the employer and the team are asked to assess their experience working together by providing feedback.

This feedback includes:

  • A public feedback comment.

  • An overall rating out of 5 stars.

  • An optional private feedback comment from the company.

  • Optional ratings out of 5 stars on various soft skills demonstrated by the receiving party.

    • For learners this is their professionalism, preparedness, responsiveness, and communication and creativity.

    • For employers this is their professionalism, preparedness, responsiveness, and communication.

You will not be able to view the feedback you received until you provide feedback. You can edit the feedback you have given within 10 days if the other party has not provided feedback to you yet.


When providing feedback to learners, employer can optionally choose to provide endorsements to any members of the team. These endorsements include:

  • A public comment

  • Any skills the learner demonstrated

These endorsements will show up on a learners individual profile alongside their team feedback for the project.
