Portfolium CEO Adam Markowitz said he was inspired to build what he calls the largest student talent showcase, after his own job-hunting success. A former rocket scientist, hewas able to land a dream job working on NASAs space shuttle program after coming to ajob interview armed with a solid portfolio. This is the most-educated but most under-employed generation in a long time. And thats a problem, Markowitz said. Unemployment and underemployment rates are hovering around 5.6% and 12.6% for the class of 2016, according to estimates reportedbythe Economic Policy Institute. And unemployment rates are substantially higher among young black and Hispanic graduates as compared towhite non-Hispanic peers. Unlike LinkedIn, About.me or traditional resumes created for print formats, Portfolium asks students to upload samples of their work to prove they have the skills and experience they say they have. The work samples could range from a writing assignment, to a video, app, or 3-D model an engineer or industrial designer may have created. To guard against plagiarism, Portfolium parses work samples, and has integrated with university systems, allowing faculty to both assign and assess work samples through the site. Partner schools encompass huge state school systems, and small liberal arts colleges alike ranging from Californias UC and Cal State systems to Williams College.

Networking doesn’t mean attending events in big rooms full of strangers! When the interview is done, ask them politely for additional contacts. If you aren’t already, start volunteering for an organization that focuses on something you’re passionate about. “Tell me about a time when you had to stick by a decision you had made, even though it made you unpopular.” Networking means staying in touch with people you know, and meeting new people. Search for state departments, divisions, committees, boards and commissions. Related: Using Craigslist to Find a Job 9.
