Seelio Online Portfolio
Students in the Department of Music are participating in a pilot launch at UT of Seelio, an online portfolio platform. Take a look at some of the professional portfolios our students have built. The University of Toledo is working with Seelio, a Michigan startup based in Ann Arbor. Seelio allows students to create an online portfolio to showcasing their work and serving as a vehicle for real-world job experience. Different than social media or resume building sites, Seelio lets "students create a professional persona through meaningful descriptions and rich, visual attachments. Take control of your professional online presence and stand out in a way that you can't on sites like LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest." read more...
The employer on average will answer 20 to 30 questions about a position when it is posted, and students are matched to that opportunity based on their answers about their skills and interests. The system identifies the top seven matches for each individual student as well as to the business for each position. When a match is made, both the employer and the student are notified, and both must select they are interested before any contact information is shared.
