With the Portfolium Network, you can build an impressive online portfolio for free, known as a Folio, showcasing your learning achievements. When you leave school, your Folio follows you so you can add new wins and experiences as you complete internships and volunteer work, acquire new skills, and land jobs. You'll also be able to connect and network with other Folio users ('cause as we all know, career success is often about who you know).
"It's more than just putting something on a resume—Portfolium allows me to show proof of all of my work for everyone to see. We spend so much time and effort putting together our papers or presentations or volunteer work, and now none of that will go unnoticed."
"I was like, 'Okay, I have these work examples from jobs and other internships, now how can I showcase this to employers?' I have been actively applying for master's programs, so I'm able to attach my Portfolium link to applications, and I've had many employers talk to me about it."
"My Folio says, ‘Hey, I know how to deal with high-pressure situations.’ With all my photos and videos, you can see the real impact of students, and that’s what employers want to see. The real-life work we do."
"It's very difficult for employers to verify whether a fresh graduate has a skill or not, but through Portfolium, employers are given a tangible way of looking at your output and comparing it to what's needed for the job."
"From a freshmen perspective, I feel like Portfolium has benefitted because I'm able to include events and accomplishments from high school and pair them with how I want to progress and grow in my academic and professional career."
"Portfolium’s badging and pathway program allows students to demonstrate their skills via video or pictures, so it lets us take what we learn here at Del Lago and translate that into something we can use in a work environment."
