 SU eRecruiting Portfolio

Showcase Your Skills with the SU Portfolio!
 

√ What is this SU eRecruiting Portfolio?  Overview

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,  mentors, professors and potential employers.
 In your portfolio, you'll find 4 main components - Profile, Resume, Experiences and References.

1.  Profile: keep your contact information and career interests here
2.  Resume: searchable by employers, it incorporates your work history, education, organizations, skills, and certifications
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!


How Do I Create The SU Portfolio?

Login here and walk through these steps:
http://salisbury.experience.com/er/security/login.jsp
Log in at above site-your login instructions are on the left side of the page (if you have never logged in you will come to one or two profile pages to complete)
Once you are at the home page (you will see the Sammy Seagull image and a large SU image), go to the top of the page and place your mouse over the "Portfolio" link-do not click on it
A drop-down will then appear and you will click on the first item on the drop-down titled "Profile"
This is your starting point-everything else is very easy to navigate.  You will see the four tabs at the top of the page.  Follow the four tabs on the top of the page and build your Portfolio!

I have My Portfolio Built Now How Do I Get Someone to Look at it?

The four sections (Profile, Resume, Experience and References) are built but how do you get someone, like an employer, to view it?

-The steps to "Share" or send your portfolio are:
Login and click on Portfolio at the top of the page
Under My Portfolio you will see a link that says "Create Shared View"- click on it. 
You will then be able to fill in anyone, any employer, any professor, etc. who you will want to look at your portfolio.  You can also choose templates that are different and quite nice.
Once you have completed the Shared View of the person you want to see it, you will arrive at a "confirmation page" that has all 4 tabs and above those tabs are 3 links-Edit Properties | Preview | Share
Each tab permits you to select the information you want to share.  There will be links to "Add Information" which give you the opportunity to send as much or as little information was you want. 
When you click on "Share" (make sure you have chosen all the information you want to send to them prior to clicking on Share.) you will arrive at a page where you have to complete the person's email, how long you want them to view it and an email message.
You will arrive at a page that asks for that person's email address, how many days you want to "share" your Portfolio and a place to select an email or write your own. 
Then click "Send."
The person will then receive an email from you that says something similar to this.  The email provides a link to your SU Portfolio:


Specific Steps on How to Share Your Portfolio:  (if it is not viewable)

I cannot get into your account due to confidentiality issues, but here is what I would do:
-click on Portfolio when you enter
-click on "Create Shared View" link in the middle, left of the page
-type in the "Viewers Name" and the "Template" you want to use
-click on "Save"
-you will then arrive at a page that lists these tabs-Profile, Resume, Experiences, References
-above these tabs you will see a "Share" link-click on the "Share" link
-on the next page you will then type in the person's email that you want to send it to and the number of days you want to share it with him/her and there is a message box you can type in a message or use one of the templates
-click "Send"
-you will then come back to a page with the four tabs on it and under the tabs you will see a link that says "add Profile Information"
-When you click on that you will then be able to select what "Profile" information you want to share-click the check boxes you want to send and click "Add"
-Next click on the Resume tab and select the resume you want to send. Do the same with the Experiences and References tabs. This is how you actually "Share" your portfolio. This procedure lets you send what you want to send.

You can this go to "Track Portfolio" and see who it was sent to at the bottom of the page. Good luck.
 



What the Employers Will See

To Whom It May Concern:

I am interested in the job that you have posted and wanted to send you my Career Portfolio that I've linked to below. Not only does it include my resume, but it also includes my Experiences, which are accomplishments and stories that I feel illustrate some of my more intangible qualities and how I've applied my skills. I hope you, too, feel that those qualities combined with my interests make me the right fit for the job.

Sincerely,
Russell Endicott
