Why portfolios are helpful:

Student Online Portfolio Example: Alex Ryan, Electrical Engineering

"Seelio has been an incredible platform for me to communicate my accomplishments with a level of depth that I couldn't get from a regular old resume. In an increasingly competitive job market, this extra dimension can mean all the difference and boosts my confidence that an employer has made the right choice when hiring me.""

Alex Ryan | Clemson University, Electrical Engineering, Class of 2015

Student Online Portfolio Example: Caroline Jardine, Visual Arts & Art Education

“I recently had a phone interview, and the company asked to see some images of my studio work. I gave them my Seelio site URL and they loved it. Not only did my Seelio site present my work professionally, but it also gave me an edge over other applicants for this position who may not have an account. I ended up getting the position and I know that my Seelio page helped me!”

Caroline Jardine | University of Toledo, Visual Arts and Art Education, Class of 2016

Student Online Portfolio Example: Will Barnett, University Recruiter at Facebook

"There is always more to a candidate than just a resume. Writing great resumes is also an entirely different set of skills than what we're actually looking for. Any ability to learn who a candidate is, beyond just their resume and their degree is critical to finding the best engineers."

Will Barnett | University Recruiter at Facebook

According to a recent survey done by the Association of American Colleges and Universities, more than 4 in 5 (or 83%) employers say an electronic portfolio would be useful to indicate that job applicants have the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in their company and organization.
