Tarleton State U Launches Digital Portfolio Network for All Students

The Texas-based university partnered with Portfolium to develop an e-portfolio network to connect its students to job opportunities.

A public university within the Texas A&M University System has recently launched an e-portfolio network for all of its students, in an effort to help students land jobs. Students at Tarleton State University (TSU) can now create digital portfolios of their academic and professional work for free through a partnership with Portfolium.

TSU worked with Portfolium to design an interface that “highlights talents and achievements, and showcases individual work in a collaborative environment that connects students directly to companies, recruiters, internships and jobs,” according to a news release. Students can connect to more than 40,000 recruiters and potential job opportunities at Disney, Nike, Google, Apple and more through Porfolium’s partners. Additionally, future employers can browse through galleries to discover talent across all fields of study “through a powerful search engine and matching algorithm that streamlines campus recruiting efforts.” Users can also search for specific portfolios and connect with students and alumni.

“Portfolium enables students to demonstrate skills in digital form, something that is increasingly critical in the modern age,” said Kelly Shaffer, director of the Center for Instructional Innovation at TSU, in a statement.

“Potential employers want to see evidence of specific skills and competencies beyond listings on a resume, and Portfolium makes that a reality,” said Diane Taylor, associate vice president for curriculum at TSU, in a statement.

To view the e-portfolio network, visit the TSU site. Further information about the platform is available on the Portfolium site.
