(Campus Technology, August 20, 2015) – A company that helps users link their achievements documented in their digital portfolios with firms that may be seeking those kinds of skills has inked a deal with the University of California System to make it available to current students and graduates. Portfolium could draw on the system’s 239,000 current students as well as living alumni to document their work and make it visible to hiring managers.
The agreement comes after a year-long pilot at the University of California San Diego. There, the alumni department made the online service available as a benefit to graduates. The program allows users to upload work samples and make them visible in online profiles in LinkedIn and Facebook. Portfolium created a widget that allowed people to confirm their university status and set up their profile.
