Portfolium, the only Student Success Network that connects teachers, students and employers has partnered with the Rochester Institute of technology (RIT) to help students increase their odds of landing an interview or job offer by strengthening their skills-based portfolios.
RIT students are using Portfolium to demonstrate soft skills such as communication alongside technical skills such as mechanical design and deep learning to maximize their appeal as well-rounded individuals with proven competencies beyond their ability to earn a degree.
In addition to leveraging Portfolium to prepare for the workforce, students benefit from an engaged community of peers and experts who offer praise and support for projects by liking and featuring them as “staff” and "expert picks” as shown here.
“From helping students articulate and prove skills, to encouraging students to engage and persist with their learning, Portfolium is proud to support the full student success lifecycle at RIT,” said Troy Markowitz, VP Academic Partnerships at Portfolium.
According to Business Insider, RIT was ranked among the best computer science and engineering schools in the 2015 Business Insider ratings. The university placed 14th in the Northeast and 36th in the U.S. RIT was recognized for its comprehensive preparation of graduates for today’s workforce, particularly in important STEM fields—science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. RIT’s Kate Gleason College of Engineering ranked among “The World's Best Engineering Schools” in 2012. Ranked 27th globally overall. The rankings were based on surveys with technology companies.
