U Penn Adopts E-Portfolios for Student Resumes

The University of Pennsylvania has teamed with a private partner to provide students access to e-portfolios as they build and update their resumes.

The university selected Portfolium's e-portfolios for their simplicity, ease of use and integration with career services such as LinkedIn.

"The university has specific goals for its undergraduate and graduate students, including shifting the focus of career services toward relevant competencies and skills rather than majors and specific schools," according to information released by the school. "The initiative with Portfolium allows Penn the unique opportunity to do just that, providing students a necessary e-tool designed to highlight a repository of unique projects, papers and designs."

The service "will be very useful, if only as a refresher as students write resumes, prepare for interviews, apply for fellowships or graduate schools," said Patricia Rose, director of career services at Penn, in a prepared statement.
