New network connects students and alumni to career opportunities
Submitted By Elizabeth Chapin
Students and alumni of the California State UniversityÕs 23 campuses will now have access to a state-of-the-art online network for professional development.
The CSU system entered a three-year agreement with Portfolium, a cloud-based network that provides alumni and students the opportunity to display their skills and accomplishments in online portfolios. The partnership will give CSUÕs 460,000 students and three million alumni access to the unique social networking site, which allows them to connect with employers, alumni and current students.
The partnership with Portfolium highlights CSUÕs commitment to high-impact practices that support student success and expand opportunity. The tool enhances student success by focusing on outcomes including career readiness, skills planning, assessment and reflection, and employer engagement.
Students and alumni have access to the Portfolium network for their CSU campus. Through this network, they can create a digital portfolio of their academic and professional accomplishments including projects, presentations and papers. The interface highlights talents and achievements that arenÕt easily captured in a traditional resume, and their work is showcased in a collaborative environment that connects them directly to companies, recruiters, internships and jobs.
