SU eRecruiting Portfolio
Showcase Your Skills with the SU
√ What is this SU eRecruiting Portfolio?
Getting in front of employers and expressing how valuable you are on
just a piece of paper is a challenge, no matter what career you're
planning to pursue after college. There's so much more to showcasing
your skills, talents and experiences.
Through our partner Experience/eRecruiting, Salisbury University is pleased to
introduce the SU Portfolio. The Portfolio provides a way for you
to go beyond your resume to recount personal experiences, define
accomplishments and upload files and work samples that demonstrate the
qualities and skills that a standard resume just can't. Here's your
opportunity to let your true personality shine.
-There are a multitude of benefits for any type of student, of any major.
● For juniors and seniors, this is a
great and easy way to compile all of your information and keep track of
it as you really begin the job search process.
● As a freshman or a sophomore you can
start gathering all of your unique experiences early so that when the
time comes to begin preparing for life after college, you're two steps
ahead of everybody else.
● You can share your
SU Portfolio with anyone-your career center,
professors and potential employers.
In your portfolio, you'll find
4 main components - Profile, Resume, Experiences and
1. Profile: keep your
information and career interests here
searchable by employers,
it incorporates your work history, education, organizations, skills, and
3. Experiences: talk about
internships, volunteer experiences, club functions, etc. Expand on items in your resume and other notable things
you've done that really show off your talents and your personality
4. References: have your references
ready should an employer ask for them-have as many as you want
Preparing for your career is hard but exciting work, so the more tools
you have at your disposal the better. We encourage you to get started in
creating a Portfolio so you can manage your job search process with ease
and connect with the right employer for you!
