Advice and answers from the Portfolium Team


Portfolium is your free, digital portfolio tool to visually showcase your academic and professional accomplishments and experiences. Creating Portfolium "entries" allows you to beautifully organize and highlight your extracurriculars, hobbies, and internships by including samples of your reports, papers and projects!

Portfolium is also your own unique personal branding tool, integrating a professional profile with social media and job-seeking features. The platform makes it very easy for you to not only search for and apply to jobs, but to also share your work with friends, colleagues and the very employers you want to work for!

GETTING STARTED

Begin by brainstorming any experiences or accomplishments that you feel would help build a positive online identity. Put yourself in the shoes of an employer. Remember--recruiters are looking to see if you have the required skills, but they also want to see your personality and passion!

Next, bring these ideas to life by using different media to create unique Portfolium entries.

QUICK TIP: Use this opportunity to really share your story and walk followers through your journey. Employers want to see your problem-solving skills. Did you encounter any challenges? If so, how did you overcome them? What did you learn from this experience?

  • Work/Professional - Expand on each bullet point on your resume with photos and more!
  • Education - Upload real samples of your coursework (pdfs, Word, Excel, PP, Prezi, SketchFab, SoundCloud, YouTube etc.)
  • Volunteer Work - Share videos and photos of your volunteer experiences
  • Clubs & Activities - Show the world what makes you... YOU! (study abroad/travel, hobbies, athletics)
